The Red Sox revolving door at shortstop should be ending soon with the emergence of 20 year old phenom Xander Bogaerts. And in all honestly, I have no fucking clue who brought that dude in, but how ASS was Theo at evaluating shortstops? Edgar Renteria? Fucking awful. Julio Lugo? Dude looked like a headless turkey out there. Then we hear all about how great Jose Iglesias is gonna be. Kid can’t even hit (Billy Madison voice).
I’m not saying Theo wasn’t a good GM either. He brought us 2 championships, and will probably go down as the greatest Sox GM of all time. But how is it with an enormous payroll we couldn’t get a guy to stay at short for more than 2 seasons? And now Ben Cherington comes in and signs Stephen Drew. Phew, the savior has arrived. If I were a betting man (which I’m not, and that’s a story for another time) I’d be willing to bet Stephen Drew is on the 60 day DL by May. Well done, Ben. Well done.
