Probably but the consensus is that Garcia > Iglesias

Iglesias has made a few jaw dropping plays in the little I've seen of him. That glove is special.

To me, the Sox need offense more than defense,altho Inglesias is looking very good.

I am glad the Sox got Garcia....but Fister was pounding him and most Sox hitters on that inside corner...nice that they found a key to lighting him up for 14 hits eventually.

Gordo Beckham really looks like a centerpiece second baseman in the Utley mold lately. He has to be very good,like he has been,if the Sox do want a quick re-build around the young rotation.

Always nice to beat the frigging tigers....now they are 17-4 in their last 21....wow. Sox need to really shock them and win the series..

Yes, Sox definitely need more offense and it is always nice to beat the Tigers. Chris Sale was outstanding again last night. So glad the Sox scored some runs so Sale could get the win.

I actually disagree. I think the best thing we can do to help the pitching staff is to tighten up the defense. I was happy with the pick up of L. Garcia. If his defense is as good as advertised, I'm fine going with him at SS.

I don't know what their contract situation with Peralta is, but he could never even dream of pulling off a play like that. I had heard that Iglesias was quite the defender before tonight, and holy crap that was incredible.
yeah...
