“…But will deal with his upcoming position change professionally…”

How so? By writing “Trade Me” on his chest like he did when the Marlins implemented a hair cut policy for their players…

I know from a pride standpoint Hanley wants to stay at short, but from a laziness/lack of work ethic standpoint he must be pumped. Moving to the hot corner will at least mean he has to move less I guess…

I don’t see Hanley signing another long term deal with the Marlins

 Julio Lugo with the glove was enough. Can you imagine how long the people of Boston would stand for another if they actually watched this guy attempt to play SS on a daily basis?

his bat would make them forget

Really dunno there.. Those double clutches of his and then a still errant throw, or worse still?? After one of his numerous dbl clutches and errant throws puts AGone into the path of a runner and gets him severely hurt..

His glove is putrid and how a bat can cover up a horrible glove at of all positions SS in Boston, one of the most critical places around would be hard to do.

he’s bad but he’s not thatttt bad..

his .380 wOBA is more than enough to overlook it .

I would much rather at least try to sign Saunders at an affordable price than trade away prospects for a top-tier starter. Also, not that it matters a ton unless it’s PETCO-sized, but does anyone know the relative dimensions of the new stadium?

Hanley will do fine at 3B! Ozzie there to help him out… He can be the next Cal, if he gives his all

Maybe a comparison as far as moving from SS to 3rd . Otherwise , he is in no way in the same league as Cal .

I hate the fact that this is Hanley’s team and he has to move positions for a injury prone player. I wish they’d just put Reyes at
2B

People saying it’s “Hanley’s team” is probably the cause to his egocentricity.

Well , the guy was their best player for years . Even though he may no longer be their best player , much like the Braves situation with Chipper , it should still be his team until he passes down the torch . Much in the way Chipper has said he is doing with McCann .

There’s a difference between a future HOFer who’s played on a team for 15+ years saying that and just an elite player saying that.

chipper doesn’t have the uber-ego that hanley has….chipper is kind of a statesman where hanley is a pompus a##….that team is i now think buerhle’s…..that guy is a leader, not hanley

same dimensions almost exactly as the current one. But nobody knows how it will play with air currents and the roof. The wind at Joe Robbie swirls about the place which helped to keep the ball in with the heavy humidity air. But, then again it doesnt matter too much as Stanton will hit 40+ next year no matter where they play.

2B with Omar Infante back to Bench.
