The Easy Move That WILL Not Be Made by the Red Sox

There’s a very easy move that should be made but won’t be by the Sox. That move is simply to allow Chavis to be your everyday second baseman and ship out Nunez or Holt. Healthy I’d say keep Holt strictly because he’s a year younger. Both are similar players so can’t go wrong either way, but one of them has to go.

That now leaves out what to do with Pedroia. He’s now going to be a bench player for the remainder of the year. He’s clearly taking some time to get back healthy, so why give him a heavy workload when he’s back? That doesn’t mean take Chavis out of the lineup all the time to get Pedroia his at-bats, that simply means when Peddy needs to play Chavis goes to third or first base.

Chavis has been a spark plug and is hitting .289 with 3 home runs and 8 RBI’s. Not exactly setting the world on fire but that’s still a productive 7 hole hitter at this level. It is without a doubt someone you don’t want to send back down to the minors. Especially when your team is struggling to win more than 3 games in a row.

With that being said, once Holt, Nunez, and Peddy are all back, you can expect Chavis to be back hitting moonshot in Pawtucket where the games mean absolutely nothing. Simply because the Sox can’t get out of their own way. They’re simply too arrogant to admit this team is not performing like they should and can’t swallow their pride enough to go help solve the problem. A.K.A GO SIGN KIMBREL PLEASE!!!

Anyways back to the point. Don’t expect to see much more Chavis in a few weeks from now. He was a blessing to watch. A nice little spark plug, but the Sox have their team and like it or not, that’s the team they’ll continue to roll with.
