Yes, there usually are MORE good hitting 3B than 2B at least in the power sense, but power may not be what the Sox really need. And the fact is that Sox 2B have generally hit better than the 3B anyway....good hitting 3B are harder to find these days.
Someone mentioned Lowrie. He could be had, but he's got incessant injury issues.
Do you mean Brett Lawrie? I would think he would be tough to get. He would be a good pickup though.
