UPDATE: Lucroy out of Thurs. BrewCrew lineup.
Gee, maybe the NOG (New Ownership Group) actually reads FenwayNation (Nah!). Nevertheless, back on July 19th, we argued in favor of trading for Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy. Fast forward to today, and ESPN's Jerry Crasnick is reporting that—in fact—Boston is one of five teams in the Lucroy trade mix. We continue to believe that Lucroy would be a fabulous addition to this team—with the All-Star bringing semi-elite defensive skills and a sizzling bat. Go get him!
