What about that 2B the Sox have in the minors that apparently hits pretty damned well? Does he have the arm for 3B? That's the only organizational option at that position that I can think of.
Declining the option does not mean the team can't negotiate with him on a new deal. The fact that they did not sign him to a new contract like they did Peavy tells me he probably isn't coming back. It also tells me that AJ will probably be back.
