It's Looking More And More Like Iglesias At SS

Trade-Chip Or Blue-Chip?
Considering all the holes the Red Sox need to fill this winter, it's no surprise that Ben Cherington is hinting strongly that the shortstop position will be filled internally—most likely with Jose Iglesias. While the 22-year old showed amazing defensive wizardry in 25 2012 games, the team is still not 100% convinced that he can hit in the bigs. Assuming the Red Sox make multiple other deals that will bring some needed lumber into the 2013 line-up, we think it's acceptable to go with the kid full-time and find out once and for all if he is a trade-chip or a blue-chip.
