[QUOTE]In Response to Reddick/Drew/Cam/McD Stats L & RH pitching : Yes, I agree, release Cam, sit Drew on the bench, send McD down and keep Reddick in RF and let him prove he belongs there. SS is another problematic area. Scu is an average fielder at best but he is horrible at the dish. He hits into too many DP's with his weak ground ball hitting. I propose that Boston takes a look at Eric Sogard in the Oakland A's AAA minor league system. He is a solid 300 hitter, OPS 382, SLG 411, OPS 793 with 13 SB, and more importantly only 31 strike outs in 275 at bats. He batted 429 last Sept. when Oakland brought him up. He is an above average infielder and can play any of the infield positions. He is out of the mold of Pedroia, in fact, like Pedoria, he played at ASU and was a 2nd round pick by SD. In his last 10 game in Sacramento he is batting 314, OPS of 419, SLG of 429 and an OPS of 847. He is a tremendous contact hitter. Last year, he led the California league with 42 doubles.

, it will tell you a little bit more about his playing abilities. And yes, he is playing at SS right now in Sacramento. Boston should trade for him.

He sounds like a promising prospect but one the Sox may need to give up too much in return. I think Iglesias will be fine. Look at a kid like Reddick, who is basically playing for nothing in the minors after being sent down so many times. His motivation and true concentration is like most kids.
At the major league level!
Lets face it, J.D. was a "non factor" last season when we needed him to step up and worse this season. Mike, has had no offense since arriving so we are basically playing them because of their salary, past and hopes they will get younger over night. Do we sacrafice another year just to make them happy, or move forward as a team on a quest to win a championship?
