Let me get this straight. You have Bogaerts at short. Holt playing pretty well at third. You bring in Stephen Drew to play short…for $10 million…only against righties… and Jonathan Herrera starts at short against righties… Really??? Can you see a team going deep into the playoffs with Jonathan Herrera starting at short stop???
Left side of the infield should have been Holt and Bogaerts. I would have never signed Drew. He didn’t want the $14.1 million that no one else was going to offer. I would say Drew and Boras are darn lucky he’s playing at all.
Workman has pitched darn good as a starter. De La Rosa definitely has his feet wet. Dubront and Buchholz are getting ready at Pawtucket. Workman stays in the rotation. De La Rosa should be sent down, but expect at least one more appearance this year. Decide which one (Buccholz or Dubront) comes up as the fifth starter and the other stays at Pawtucket. If Workman is removed from the rotation, I give up. And I hope Dubront stays at Pawtucket.
Grady Sizemore’s days HAVE to be numbered, I’m sorry to say. Thirteen days from now, $250k gets tacked on to his salary. For every 25 plate appearances from 225 to 500, he earns an additional $250k. He’s over 200 now, and is hitting .216. When Victorino comes back, he reclaims right field. Jackie Bradley has to continue at center, if only to solidify the future. Platoon Gomes and Nava in left and go with whoever is hot.
A split with Cleveland? Give me a break Sox!!!
