Julio Lugo shows signs of life

N4N played Curt in a Car while driving home from yesterday's utterly sweet 6-5 comeback win by the Sox over the Rangers. Landing via cell on WEEI, I expressed my appreciation for the versatile Jed Lowrie and wondered aloud if the time might be coming to make him a fixture on the Boston nine.

Julio Lugo, as I pointed out, has shown a propensity of late for hitting weak grounders into double plays.

Someone was listening, apparently:

Julio Lugo went 4-for-4 with a walk and an RBI as the Red Sox scored at least five runs for the ninth straight game. They finished with 12 hits and 11 walks.

Yes, Boston won today, 8-3, and things are good.

But can Lugo sustain it, proving that he was the player Theo Epstein thought he was?

I'm willing to be convinced. For now, though, it's still hard to figure why, out of Orlando Cabrera, Rent-a-Wreck, and Alex Gonzalez, we held onto Lugie.
