    Sorry.

    But Bogaerts is only here to get his feet wet in postseason MLB.

    Farrell (if he has any brains...and we know he does) will ride the horses that brought him this far. It would be folly to switch in midstream.

    Drew will be at SS. Middlebrooks at 3rd.

    I will  be shocked if Middlebrooks sits, unless he has an injury.

    This guy is as big a part of the Red Sox future as anyone, it would be a huge blow to his confidence if he is benched in favor of a player with limited experience. Consider also that the entire lineup is not hitting much....you can't bench them all.

    You don't get put on the team during the post season to "get your feet wet" 

    He's here because he's a phenom and they believe he can help them win.

    Do you think he got a START in an ALCS game to "get his feet wet" 

    but yeah.....no one is hitting, that is true.

    How is he a phenom?  What has he done that puts him the "phenom" class?  He is a good player with a bright future but has not exactly been earth shattering.   It isn't always who starts the game but often who finishes the game and last night did not see X at the end.

    I'm not talking about ONE night or ONE!!! at bat.  I'm talking about Xander Bogaerts as a product overall.  Just because he didn't go 4/4 and hit 3 home runs is in no way an indictment on who he is, and how he has been regarded all around the minor league and scouting community; and that is a PHENOM. 

    Remember there is a world that exists before major league baseball.

    I'm sure a 20 year old who started the year in double A and is arguably the games top prospect and ends up finishing the year in the majors starting a game in the ALCS must just be an OK talent.

    The only reason Drew is in there is that his defense has been solid. At the plate he has been terrible, even messing up an opportunity to bunt a guy over. That from a guy who played in the NL for years. Bogaerts starts ahead of MIddlebrooks because Middlebrook's defense has been a bit suspect in that he tends to let grounders to his right get by him for doubles. At the plate he usually gets himself in a hole by taking a first pitch strike and then swinging at crap or taking a called 3rd strike.
