I mentioned this in aanother thread that an infield of Youkilis at 1b, Renteria at 3b, Hanley at SS, and Pedroia at 2b is the future Sox infield. Additionally, Hanley is not a "mediocre" SS or 2b. He is an incredible talent that has 20/20/.300 potential and is the prince of the Red Sox system, which is increasingly growing some actually talented players.
How is he defensively? I would be hard pressed to believe that he could be better than Renteria. I haven't seen him much in Boston, but I know when he was w/ the Cards he was one of the finest defensive SS's in the league.
Also, wouldn't you have said four years ago that Renteria had 20/20/.300? Let's not count our chickens before they're hatched.
Prince of the Red Sox system... you Bean-Towners crack me up.
