POLL: Majority Now Support Acquiring Lowrie As 'Muddy Chicken Insurance'

Continued voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll shows that a majority (52%) now favor going after old friend Jed Lowrie to act as a "back-up" and/or platoon player at second base—given the injury uncertainties surrounding Dustin Pedroia. As the chart shows, a little over one-quarter of our readers (26%) take the view that the Red Sox should rely on their existing roster options to deal with any Muddy Chicken-elated health issues. Aside from the Lowrie alternative, 9% would rather that Boston pursue Daniel Murphy and another 6% would prefer getting D.J. LeMahieu to fill the role. Pursuit of other players not offered explicitly in the poll is an option selected by 6% of readers. you can still vote in the poll HERE.
