Personally, I think he will rebound this year so playing time may be an issue. 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.
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.
