The Red Sox have gotten more production from Jose Iglesias than they probably could've imagined up until this point.

The shortstop has a team-high .410 batting average to go along with a .459 on-base percentage and a .987 OPS, and continues to showcase his talents in the field as well.

Because of this, Iglesias' value could be at an all-time high. And with Xander Bogaerts waiting for his chance in Pawtucket, could it be time to seek potential trade offers for Iglesias while his value his high?

Both Steve Buckley and Lou Merloni don't think so, and they explained why on The Baseball Show. 

"He's special to me, and we've had this discussion: 'What if he could hit .240, .250?' Now we've gone from that to maybe he can hit .270, .280," Lou Merloni said. "So this sell high thing, it's a difficult thing because people want to trade John Lackey right now. You finally have the guy playing the way you want him…Now that you've finally seen it, why would you want to get rid of it?"
