First base -- Anthony Rizzo: Ah, yes, the position that was wrapped up for the foreseeable future. Oops. The least the Sox can do is go full circle and trade for one of the prospects that went west in the Adrian Gonzalez deal. Rizzo, now with the Cubs, had a much better 2012 in the majors (.285, 15 home runs, .805 OPS) than he did in 2011 with the Padres, and is clearly something of an obsession with former members of the Red Sox front office. Cherington deserves his shot. Why no Edwin Encarnacion? Well, just something about a 42-home run hitter who had never hit more than 26 in his career on the same team as Jose Bautista. That’s all.
