I usually dont write about trade rumors because most of the time they turn out to be bullshit and I just end up annoyed when all is said and done. But with the Red Sox trading Jose Iglesias and with Will Middlebrooks down on the farm, they now have a huge hole to fill at third base.
They called up Brock Holt today but this guy is just a band aid. Lets be serious, he isnt going to be their starting third baseman for the final two months of the season in the heat of a pennant race.
All of this, combined with the fact that Michael Young is willing to waive his no-trade clause to come to the Red Sox, means this thing has some legs.
