Just can't believe that they talk about sending Iglesias down. The guy is freaking good at his position and will save a TON of runs. The Red Sox are getting on my nerves with their " we want a batting SS ". Runs preventions can do wonders for your team...

I couldn't agree more!!

I really like the idea of having a slick fielding shortstop. Ozzie Smith didn't debut until he was 23, and he hit in the low .200s his first several years; but they stuck with him because of his defense and he turned out okay as a hitter in the long run.
Omar Vizquel was simliar to that as well.

Keep Iglesias up for now. He has made some nice adjustments to his hitting. He hits like a slap hitter with a little hitch now and not like a power hitter with a one motion swing as before. Besides Drew is not going to vastly outperform anyone, I don't think. Hoping for a third win in a row but with the dumpster man on the hill, I doubt it.

It's so dumb. The Yankees are essentially fielding a Triple A team right now. They'll be far better when they get healthy. I love that it's bothering NY fans though. Classic...

No kidding

MLB season is a grind and the Red Sox starting rotation is still suspect. We'll see what happens.

I still think the line-up has a glaring hole in the heart of the order.

Who cares? Enjoy this while it lasts. This team looks better. They all seem to be on the same page. Aggressive. Its much more cohesive than last year. Build a big lead before the Yanks get the fort back.

I agree. Nothing wrong with being excited that they won their first two games. Plus, I think just the general attitude of the team feels better. I'll be the first to admit I lost interet in cheering for several of those guys the past few years; and it's refereshing to see some hustle and youth in the mix.

Shift works beautifully there. Middlebrooks throws Cano out from right field.

Overbay looks like Jere Burns from Justified. Pre-plastic surgery of course.

It's bad when you're giving up homers to Brett Gardner.

Dempster blows. I guess Cherington turned a blind eye to his performance in Texas last season.

Bruinswinscup, Dempster had a rough start in texas but rebounded and pitched well.

Looks like pettitte is still on the juice
