No More Shortstop Problems? Look Again.

Well, Jed Lowrie, our solid shortstop, is injured. Yesterday (4-21-09) Lowrie got surgery on his left wrist, and he could be out for 6-8 more weeks. In the time Lowrie is not playing, Nick Green will, Green is a capable shortstop at defense, not as good as Lowrie though. They are probably equal in hitting. Soon Lugo will be off the DL, I wouldn't mind seeing Lugo after a while, but the Sox just have to remember that Lowrie is their starting guy! I don't expect this to have a huge effect on Lowrie's career, because I think he could win some Gold Gloves in some time, and if he works on it a .300 AVG! Green has been playing very well however and in the 10-8 Red Sox victory, he made it from 8-8 to 10-8, with a 2 run double. I think the Red Sox have a much better shortstop game than they did last year!


  1. Hey dude do you know if the Sox are gonna get any new players soon? By the way are you out of town cause I cant seem to get a hold of you.

  2. Sorry to hear about Jed Lowrie. He is one of my favorite players on the Sox this year. Hope his recovery goes quickly.
