It's extremely unlikely they bring Loretta back. Pedroia if he plays will be the SS, then they'll either go after Lugo or retain Gonzalez.

Middle infield situation in Boston this year is extremely wide open.

Loretta is a free agent and will not be back. Pedroia is not an every day SS, and in his audition last year at 2b, he was less than impressive. That is the situation going into the FA period and why the Lugo splash will be made relatively early.

It would not be outlandish to think that he may wind up back with the Dodgers. I think that his poor performance down the stretch left less of a sour taste with management than one would think. He was supposedly hampered for quite a while by the finger injury he sufferred in his last week with the Rays, and the fact that he accepted a reduced role speaks well of his disposition and attitude.

Granted, I do not believe that the Dodgers will let Nomar walk, but if they do, why not plug Lugo in at 2B and flip Kent to 1B? Colletti claimed that he had grander plans for Lugo than a 2 month rental when they gave up Guzman for him.

Now that Aurilia is a free agent, i'd rather see the Metros sign him to play 2B. Save some money on Lugo, and spend the money elsewhere on pitching and OF. (Zito, Willis, or Manny). Aurilia would be a good 2B fill in for the Mets I think.

Which round?

I think both RSox and Jays are good fit and have the $ to sign Lugo. Where would you draft him if he joins one of the 2 teams? 9-10th rd? Will he be as valuable as Furcal?
