You answered this before I could, Hanley will probably be moved to center but not until after this year because IMO if Hanley moves to center this year, it shows that we are gonna let Damon walk at the end of the year and will probably cause for some uneasy times in the locker room. Damon being a FA really scares me cause the Yanks need a CF and lead off hitter like Damon and this obviously would not be good for the Sox to let him go there.
Also, Pedroia was a SS coming into the Sox system and this year they moved him over to 2nd so he could play side by side with Hanley, so I doubt they'll also move Hanley as well.
I also saw Hanley play when I was down in Spring Training, I was VERY impressed by the way he plays, he's very aggressive on the base paths and I saw him scretch a sure single into a double, very quick. Can't wait to see what he can do for the big league team next year.
