POLL: Most Want Jed Lowrie As A Back-Up/Platoon At 2B With Dustin Pedroia

Early results to our latest FenwayNation Poll show that a plurality of readers (46%) want the Red Sox to acquire old friend Jed Lowrie to serve as a "back-up/platoon" option with Dustin Pedroia at 2B in 2019. As the chart shows, the next highest choice (34%) cites a preference to use existing roster options to back-up Pedroia. Some of those would be: Brock Holt, Marco Hernandez, Tony Renda, Eduardo Nunez and Tzu-Wei Lin. The survey also found that 12% would rather go after Daniel Murphy for the back-up 2B role on the team. Just 4% would opt to pursue free-agent 2B D. J. LeMahieu to back-up The Muddy Chicken—with the same percentage (4%) looking for another free agent/trade option beyond those listed in the poll.
