Aug 9, 2013; Bronx, NY, USA;  New York Yankees right fielder Curtis Granderson (14) steals second as Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias (1) is late with the tag during the eighth inning at Yankee Stadium. Yankees won 4-3.  Mandatory Credit: Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY SportsThe Red Sox traded Jose Iglesias to the Tigers before the trade deadline, and some folks in Boston were less than thrilled. They pointed out his .330 average that he was sporting, and noted that at the time it was better than Stephen Drew, the other shortstop in Boston.

The real special aspect about Iglesias, however, is not his bat. Not by a long shot. By season's end, he'll most likely be around a .280 hitter, even after his torrid start. In reality, he is the quintessential glove man.

Iglesias is one of the best fielders in baseball, and he showed it with this incredible play for the Tigers:



The Red Sox won't miss his bat at all, especially since Drew is hitting .422 since the trade. But that glove... wow. Iglesias is a wizard.

Hah! I don't know if I would be incredibly upset or just impressed if I was a White Sox fan.
