The Roster Game- Infielders

First- Happy Eve of Christmas Eve . . . okay, that doesn’t make much sense but you get the idea.

Second- My Celtics are going for a 19 game winning streak today against the 76er’s.
Third- The Nationals upped up their offer to Tex’. Lets hope they get him so we don’t have to trade Lowell. I will say out of all the free agent signings the past few years this one has many mixed feelings for Red Sox fans.
Fourth- David Wright is going to play for team U.S.A.!
Fifth- Yes, it is true. I will not blog any more do to personal reasons. So, I will let my son take it over from here. We share many of the same feelings.
Okay, hi I’m Bob. I have my new bio in the top right if you want to read it.
So I’m Going to pick of from where we left off the infield.
1 base- Prince Fielder, .276, 34 home runs, 102 RBI’s, 3 Stolen Bases, $670,000
player

Prince had a down year from 50 home runs last year, but he is still young and hits for power. He is slow but he is doing the best he can with his weight. Prince is very cheep also.He could use a little work on his average though. Prince players for the love of the game thats why he ran out 2 or something like that  inside the park home runs.

Honorable Mention

Carlos Pena

player 

2nd base- Dustin Pedroia- .326, 17 home runs, 83 RBI’s, 20 stolen bases, $457,000

player 

I know that he got a big new contract but I’m using last years salaries and who wouldn’t want an MVP on their team for only $457,000. He also won a Golden Glove and a Silver Slugger. Pedroia is young and a great guy in the club house. He hits for decent power and great contact. He can bat any where in the order 1st, 2nd ,cleanup, or last, of course who would want him last? Peedie is only going to get better by age.

Honorable Mention 

Ian Kinsler

player

Shortstop
Hanley Ramirez- .301, 33 home runs, 67 RBI’s, 35 stolen bases, $439,000

player

Hanley is a classic example of a great player playing for a bad team. Okay the Fish aren’t a bad team they aren’t just not that good. Hanley is a hall of famer in the making. He is fast, hits for power and contact, cheep, and a great influence in the clubhouse. He is still very young also.

Honorable Mention 

Stephen Drew

player 

3rd base

Kevin Youkilis-  .312, 29 home runs, 115 RBI’s, 3 stolen bases, $3,000,000

player

I know Youk doesn’t play third full time but he probably will after Tex’ comes and signs. Youk is a Gold Glover at first and third. He won the A.L. Hank Aaron award this year along with a third place finish in the MVP voting. Youk just gets better every year, I know I’ve said that a lot but Youk shows the best example. Youk will probably hit 30+ home runs next year.

Honorable Mention 

Davis Wright

player

Todays payroll- $4,566,000

Total payroll so far- $12,183,666
