    Re: Why Did The Red Sox ....

    The Sox did this because they think Drew is a good player who is a better option than the two young shortstops they have.

    Lots of posters here agree.

    We'll all know the truth by the end of May

    Because Scutaro can't play SS anymore and the Sox already have Pedroia at 2B?

    Drew is no defensive wizard himself!

    [/QUOTE]

    Did you look at his numbers for other than last year? I know the answer is NO. if you did you'd have seen he was similar to Andrus, Reyes,  and many others. He also had more chances than 2/3 of all MLB SS.   He is not The Wizard of Oz but he is better than any past SS going back to Nomar.

    [/QUOTE]


    That's debatable. Gonzalez and Cabrera were no slouches. Truth of the matter is he's just another rental. the Sox can't seem to decide on a SS for the long term. Rent-a-wreck and Yugo were supposed to be the saviors but we all know how that turned out.

    Now, we do have a "wizard of Oz", but ben doesn't want to use him. Go figure!

    [/QUOTE]


    Because. He. Can't. Hit. MLB Pitching. Yet.

    [/QUOTE]

    He puts the ball in play just as well as many of the veterans. If you were watching his ABs, he hit the ball pretty well but a lot of them were right at people. He has good plate discipline and those balls will find holes. He just has to "hit 'em where they aint"!

    [/QUOTE]


    I didn't say he would never hit. And I've been one of Iglesias' biggest defenders on this board. I think he has quick hands and good hand eye coordination, so in all likelihood he will hit. But he's very young still, and he's been always placed about a level too high due to his outstanding D. With Drew here he has a chance to spend an extra year at AAA and let his bat catch up to his glove a little bit.

    why start an inept offensive SS with GG defense when you can have drew on a 1 year deal (providing iggy with the extra year in AAA he DESPERATELY needs) with above average D and 6 times the offense iggy will give you.

    [/QUOTE]

    Again I say, Iggy has 89 PAs at the big league level, hardly enough to judge his offensive capability. He is more than capable of hitting .260 or better playing everyday. You apparently didn't watch his ABs. The average doesn't show it but the kid knows how to hit.

    [/QUOTE]


    I agree with this. Iggy hit the ball very hard this year. Problem was that most of the time it went right at someone. Thats just bad luck. He can hit MLB pitching. I also agree he still needs some more work in that area and at only 22 hes got the time.

    Unfortunately, in todays baseball, defense at SS is second to offense from SS. The way Ozzie hit in his ealry years, if it were today, a) he never would have developed into the hitter he became and b) he wouldnt have gotten enough playing time to ever be know as the Wizard of OZ.

    [/QUOTE]

    Even back in his early years he was traded by the Padres to the Cardinals for a better hitting SS in Templeton.
