By Nick DiBattista Sorry Jose, I'm not sold on you in that uniform I already know that writing this article is going to bump heads with a few writers on the staff, and probably a majority of you readers—but I feel that it needs to be said. Jose Iglesias IS a bust, and his value is only going to remain this high as long as he hides in AAA, so before he comes up to the majors and ruins his trade value, the Red Sox should look to trade him. Right now, the holes are filling up one by one on the roster, so there won’t be a shortage of options the Sox could package Iglesias for. The time to move Iglesias is now, where the team could use two starting pitchers, a few arms in relief, a steadier shortstop, infield depth (particularly at third base), an option at DH, some catching depth, and a corner outfielder.

  • Iglesias may indeed end up being a bust, but he has already proven himself exponentially more successful as a baseball player than the author of this article is as a writer. If you want to persuade people of your opinion, you should take more time to either learn how to express that opinion or take more time to edit your writing - or perhaps both. It's unbelievably annoying to choose to read something about an area of interest (Red Sox) only to quickly determine that the article isn't worth reading because it's written so poorly.
