Lugo's been a bust, so Boston would certainly play him at short, which he prefers. On the other hand, Boston would probably have to cut ties with Man-Ram, and I don't think it makes them a whole lot better. (Even though Manny's been fairly bad in '07). Either way, the whole A-Rod situation'll be interesting, to say the least.
