I see the issue with Lugo/Lowrie in '09 being similar to the current situation they have in CF with Crisp/Ellsbury, so it becomes an issue of if Lowrie will see enough playing time in 2009.

I think Brignac is probably your best bet for a full-time starting gig next year.


Julio Lugo isn't blocking anybody. :-D

Moustakas is definitely your best bet but it's still doubtful that SS is his long term home. Andrus is a pretty safe pick because he's definitely at SS long term and will be hitting in Arlington.


I disagree, Lugo is blocking Lowrie. Lowrie could be a starter on a lot of teams, but the Red Sox invested to much money to quit on Lugo after one year. Lowrie might make a better 2nd basemen, but he's blocked by Pedroia. It's kind of a tough situation for him. He's a switch hitter with plus power as a middle infielder, hits for a good average, and has excellent plate discipline.

What's everyone's opinions on Todd Frazier as a SS prospect? He has some pop, speed, and a good batting eye. He's already off to a fast start this year too with 4 HR in 21 AB.

No chance he stays at SS, so it already takes him out of the dicussion. Also a polished college bat like him shouldn't be in Low A, as he is showing it's not even a challenge for him.

Frazier is mashing in Single A Dayton this year. He's leaps and bounds better than the competition he's facing so far. He might be the reason the Reds could trade Edwin in the future.

If it helps any, Lowrie got called up yesterday...

Red Sox purchased the contract of infielder Jed Lowrie from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Lowrie doesn't have a lot of experience at third base, but the Red Sox will surely spend the next few days working him out there. If he looks good, he'll probably make at least a few starts while Mike Lowell is out. He could have a little value in AL-only leagues for the short-term

How about Trevor Pluoffe.

he is really starting to hit a bit and has a solid glove. Lastly, it's not like anyone is blocking him anywhere in the infield on the big club.

Brandon Wood anyone, looks like he's going to have another monster season (last I checked he's leading the minor leagues in homeruns), and I think he still has a shot at staying a short stop.

Really doubt he plays SS in the majors, he just isn't really good enough defensively. Aybar is head and shoulders better defensively and not bad with the bat either.
