    With the Sox working Burger at 2B, wouldnít it have been easier to let him play 3r and let a more natural 2B Iím Yo-yo play 2nd?

    Then you're playing 2 players out of position rather than 1 (even though Yoan has plenty of experience at 2nd)

    This way the entire infield can keep its chemistry and just have to adjust to Burger at 2nd

    Burgers a 3B so how is he played out of position? Yoan came up as a 2B, so he can easily play that position.

    I do agree that it makes sense but this has to be the main reason, since as you pointed out Burger and Moncada each have experience at 3B and 2B respectively

    Would we really say Burger has experience at 2b? How much do you have to play to say you have experience at it more than the technical term of, I played there for a game or two?

    I think there's a large gap defensively between Yoan and Burger. Yoan does not need to be moving positions, he's one of the premier guys at 3b in the league. Either Burger comes in ready to play 2b, or we roll with Mendick/Leury, or trade route.

    I agree. Keeping Moncada at 3B is more about not messing with a good thing. Moncada prefers 3B over 2B and when he did play 2B, he struggled both in the field and at the plate. Why risk it? If the leaner version of Burger canít adjust to 2B, you either roll with Mendick/Garcia or look at trade help.

    I think itís gotta be a trade to be honest. Just not someone that breaks the bank unless we trust them as our RF after this season. Kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

    Now is a good time to throw in an offer for Frazier. Heís slumping so we can play our cards. I canít see him costing top young specs. Give them Sheets and Lambert and call it a day

    I agree with this. The only way Moncada should be moved to 2b would be for him to tell TLR that is what he wants for the good of the team.

    I was hoping that Lopez would have some value as a reclamation project based on his arm alone.

    Or, if there was a GameChanger brought in at 3B, but I donít see that happening.

    Will be interesting to see what Cespedes does in the minors, now that he has been activated. Hitless in first 2 games, so far.

    Yes someone better than Yoan like just names, Arenado, Moncada gets moved without him asking.

    I was intending to refer to Burger having experience at 3B and Moncada at 2B so I think we're on the same page
