No difference. Having an average hitting 3B and Beckham at 2B or an equivalent hitting 2B and beckham at 3rd, is the same result.
Yes, there usually are MORE good hitting 3B than 2B at least in the power sense, but power may not be what the Sox really need. And the fact is that Sox 2B have generally hit better than the 3B anyway....good hitting 3B are harder to find these days.
Someone mentioned Lowrie. He could be had, but he's got incessant injury issues.
