By David Little – @DLittleMLB With Pedroia alluding to the fact that he will not play this season, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that second base needs an upgrade. The obvious caveat to this being salary, the Red Sox can still make upgrades. Although the bullpen is also a major “need” area, I would like to look at potential second base options.
