Fair enough, and it sounds like Story could miss most of the year anyways so probably not something worth worrying about at this point. I don’t know what Andrus is looking for but he’s at the point where he may have to settle for what he can get and the Sox can clearly offer playing time.Probably true, but in this case what exactly is down the road? Mayer won't be a factor until at minimum late 2024, so unless he's holding out for more than 2 years it shouldn't be an issue. He can play short, Arroyo can stay at 2nd, and then when Story comes back Arroyo becomes the utility guy, something they don't really have on the roster right now.
Hell, one could probably make a case for signing two veteran IF.
