Abraham On T&R: Too Early For Red Sox To Think About Trades?
The Red Sox were in New York over the weekend and were able to best the Yankees taking two out of three games.
Red Sox insider Peter Abraham joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss the success this Red Sox team is having, Jose Iglesias and starting pitching.
The MLB trade deadline is still quite a bit away, but the guys wonder what spots the Red Sox might need to fill come deadline time? Would the Sox be willing to give up two top prospects for Cliff Lee? Should they if given the chance?
Jose Iglesias’s defensive prowess was known, but his production at the plate was lacking. The shortstop was called upon to fill in at third while Will Middlebrooks spends some time on the DL and his bat has come alive. Does this mean that he’ll be the Sox starting shortstop next season?
They also discussed Jon Lester and the fact that he has two losses and a no-decision in his past three starts. Why is he cooling off after having such a hot start to the season? Is this just water finding it’s level?
