Given KW's proclivity for trading prospects, I would not be surprised if the Sox want him to stay at 3B right now. If his bat develops as they expect/hope, he would have more value as a third baseman than as a LF or 1B.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
