Decisions… decisions…

What do the Red Sox do with the shortstop position when Stephen Drew returns?

The members of The Baseball Show panel agree this is Stephen Drew's job to lose.

"This is one of the better shortstops in the game before he got hurt in 2011." said Lou Merloni, "Jose Iglesias, it's great that he's gotten some hits.  I think he's better than he was last year… there's still things he needs to work on.  I still think when Stephen Drew comes back, he is your shortstop."

As for the J.D. Drew comparisons? Lou Merloni says to forget about them.

"They got to let the J.D. Drew thing go," added Merloni, "Stephen Drew had one injury that effected two seasons. Other than that he is playing 152 (games). The guy goes out there and plays. He is not his brother."
