Is there any reason whatever to believe that Pedroia is a more useful player than Hanley Ramirez at this stage? He's three months older, has an OPS+ 10 points less and has doubtless declined as much from his peak at 2B as Hanley has from his peak at SS. I KNOW Pedroia has more WaR, but when you look at the actual figures that looks like a defect in the WaR formula more than anything else.

Just asking for a friend... I bet Hanley is damn useful to whichever team picks up up for the minimum. Certainly the Sox offense today without him looks pretty anemic.

Ya see Karl, there's this whole other side of the game that we call "defense" and much like Hanley you apparently have not heard of it...

DH types who can manage a ~90 OPS+ are pretty readily available. Most of them would be much less expensive than $22M next year.

Sometimes Karl knows we need a lift. Thanks buddy.
