There is a new present under the tree. About two years after the first rumors Adrian Gonzalez is about to be a Red Sox. He is costing 4 minor leaguers. I guess that is not too bad. I really thought it was going to cost a few players ready for the majors. After all the doom and gloom when we didn't resign V-Mart, it turns out Theo had a plan all along. We have the whole starting 9 in place and didn't give up a draft pick to do it. Not only that but we will gain 4 picks with V-Mart and Beltran leaving. That is if we don't sign Werth or Crawford. Personally I don't want to see either of them come to Boston. I think our OF is fine the way it is. If I had to pick between the two though I would pick Werth. Crawford is a little faster but he gets slower every year and will want paid for at least 6 years. I say pass. All we need to do now is shore up the bullpen and we can win with this lineup. The only question is where to bat Gonzalez? Personally I like:
Salty (abbreviated cause I don't have all day to type his name)
But you could put 3, 4, and 5 in about any order and be productive.
