Now everyone on Twitter is saying the Diamondbacks are the front runners? THIS IS ANARCHY.

No, this is twitter. Which I guess is pretty much anarchy anyway.

Looks like D-backs are front runners for Peavy now:

Send Chris Owings, Andrew Chafin and Alfredo Marte.....lets do this!! Or Matt Davidson as one of the names I wouldn't complain about either.

I would assume the Sox will be able to find someone making the Major League minimum salary who could hit for a .650 OPS and commit 17 errors at SS in a pinch
The difference to me is screwing with Beckham's position yet again. At 2B, besides injury issues, he is having a fine year both offensively and defensively. No reason to mess with that.

Agreed. Although there's really no one in the system to replace Alexei, I'd rather see Beckham stay put for the sake of not throwing too much at him at once. He seems to be finally breaking through and I'd like to see that continue. Although he might be able to (and want to) take on the challenge of SS, I'm hoping they just keep it simple for him. If they want to make that change, give him an off season and Spring Training to try to get back to that position. I worry that trying it mid-season could present other problems (like regressing offensively).

And, I take this as the fan base being ready and interested in this rebuild... The amount of people watching this thread are more than I've seen on WSI in months.

If true, Pirate package has a top 10 in baseball whereas Owings is 90+
