Marco Scutaro Speaks His Mind...UCONN Women Win Number 44 IN A ROW
The possible Boston Red Sox shortstop for 2010 and 2011 expressed his thoughts in an interview with a Venzuelan newspaper recently. It is said that the Red Sox, Dodgers, Mariners and Rangers have interest in Marco Scutaro, who had a breakout year for the Blue Jays last year. Here are the teams he would be interested in...
“There are two teams that would interest me, which are the Dodgers and Boston,’’ Scutaro said.
If Toronto offers him arbitration, will he accept and stay with the Canadian club?
“I think it’s no secret that I am going to be offered arbitration, because they (Toronto) want their draft pick. There is still the possibility that I could accept arbitration and be with them for a year, but that’s not the idea,’’ he said. “The idea is to get a contract of at least two years.’’
Two years is exactly what Boston is thinking of because they have a young phenom maturing in the minors. His name would be Jose Iglesius. But until he's ready, I'm darn sure Theo Epstein will do his best to land Scutaro and slot him into the shortstop position. After all, Boston is virtually a "shortstop-less" club with the uncertainty surrounding Jed Lowrie's health.
