    I loved Naehring!  Give me a team of Trot Nixons and Tim Neahring anyday.

    I know Tim Naehring, I was a fan of Tim Naehring, I watched him play dazzling third base and hit the ball harder than anyone for a time being, and you sir, Jed Lowrie, are no Tim Naehring.

    I dunno, Burrito. I kind of agree on Naehring. Great upside, I liked him too, but his potential was never fully realized. 

    Now, John Valentin - he fared better.  There was a player!

    As for Trot Nixon, you are now getting into Dirt Dog Territory. Sacred Ground, my friend.  Brian Daubach, Shea Hillenbrand, Lou Merloni, Gabe Kapler (my opinion)...now yer sayin' sumpin'.  Gimme a team of those doggies. Yowza.

    I read some idiot's post about how Lowrie was already an elite MLB SS. Hard to be that when you can't even finish a full MLB season. Lowrie is a pretzel who is either moving elsewhere to play 2B or hanging around to be UIF'er. He's a classic service time counter.

    I recall Valentine (who was a solid performer) whining about moving to 3rd in order to make room for the new SS Nomar.  He did it though, and played a good 3rd base too.

    Ye-e-e-a-a-a-h-h!  I forgot about that.  Thanks.  Why do the Red Sox attract so many whiners, or is that the nature of the beast?

    Danny, 

    IThe Naehring comparison isn't bad and isn't an insult to either one. I  was a fan of Naehring.  But as I recall, Naehring had injury issues, never played more than 126  games in a season and played more than 100 games just twice. (And both years was after age 27. Lowrie is 27 and likely will get his first 100-plus game season this year).

    From age 23 through 27, Naehring:
    235 G, 750 AB, 78 R, 196 H, 43 2B, 1 3B, 13 HR, 88 RBI, .261 BA, .701 OPS

    From age 24 through 27, Lowrie:
    199 G, 606 AB, 86 R, 161 H, 49 2B, 4 3B, 16 HR, 97 RBI, .266 BA, .779 OPS

    Despite fewer games, at-bats and hits (so far), Lowrie has more doubles, triples, home runs, RBIs, Runs, BA and OPS. (Also slugging and OBP, which I didn't post).

    And Lowrie will pass Naehring in games played and at-bats at age 27 by midseason.

    Naehring was better defensively but both are versatile. Naehring came up as a SS and also played 2B and 3B. There are a lot of similarities, but the stats show Lowrie has been a better hitter at a similar stage of their careers.

    Naehring ended up with a .282 career BA because he batted .307, 286, .282 in his last three years (28, 29, 30). We'll see what Lowrie does from here on out.

    When Lowrie is healthy, not tired, not overheated or exhausted, he is not as good as anyone in the game. He's not a SS.

    So far Uncle Jed has been better than many players named J.D. or John making much more money.

    It's too soon in his career to be making comparisons to long gone players who were duds.

    I don't remember much about Naehring.  Looking at his stats does make an interesting comparison.

      A-Rod didn't argue about switching to third because it was his only way out of Texas and into New York.
