This = Jones to 1B, LMill called up to fill the roster spot (assuming the deal is for a prospect(s)). Time to grab Milledge if you haven't already, IMO.

Damn Right!!!

New Lineup
CF - A.McCutchen
2B - F.Sanchez (next to be traded)
1B - G.Jones
C - R.Doumit
RF - B.Moss/D.Young
3B - Andy LaRoche
LF - L.Milledge (will hit second when Sanchez moves)
SS - J.Wilson (next to be traded)

What a turn around, Neil Huntington is taken place......

What are the Red Sox planning on doing with LaRoche? Platooning him with Lowell and having Youkilis play 1B/3B?

Id guess LaRoche at 1B and send Youk to 3B?

Maybe this means Lowell's hip problems are serious again. There was talk of this a couple of weeks ago. :-?

I'd say so. Youk will move between 1B and 3B depending on Lowell's health and that day's matchup. And like Aussie said, this may be a sign of a possible setback with Lowell.

Pearce has been waiting for 2 years for LaRoche to go away and now that he is Garrett Jones has emerged as the likely replacement. Is Pearce ever going to be able to get consistent ABs?

A platoon with LaRoche and Lowell would probably be a good thing for the Sox after losing Lowell like they did last year. At least this year, they will have a better option to play first then Kotsay.
