Poll: “Short” handed Red Sox

New Poll Question:
What to do with the Sox caught "Short" handed?

With Jed Lowrie out until at least the All Star break and possibly longer, what should the Red Sox do at SS this season?

- Nick Green all the way to October
- It's Julio Lugo's job to lose for 2009
- Lugo/Green split time until Lowrie gets back
- Bring in Bobby Crosby, or someone else from the outside
- Maybe Hanley's still available (for laughs only please don't vote for this unless your baseball IQ is < 1)

As always, new poll is up to the right...vote away and argue it out in the comments.

Previous Poll Results:
Are you worried about the Red Sox slow start?
I would agree with the majority here.  Ellsbury’s a worry for sure, but not as big as the hole in Big Papi’s early season swing.  Lester (as noted in today’s post on Fire Brand) is likely to be fine and the Sox have been known to weather injuries ok.

    As the only remaining person opposed to the Hanley trade, I took that option. Felt I had no other choice.
    Heading into the game tonight, on the Monster. I'm going to get soaked to the bone.

    Bobby Crosby? Bobby CROSBY??? He of the terrible offensive numbers and persistent health issues? Why in the world would any team want to add Bobby Crosby? If he's the best available outside option, I say, "Welcome back, Julio Lugo."
