In Response to Albert Pujols playing 1b at Fenway in 2012???
[QUOTE]Could that happen--the Sox may be one of the few teams that could offer Albert an ARod like contract. With Drew, Papi, Tek and Wake coming off the books--you are looking at about $27 M, which it may take. You could then move AGon for a pitcher and positional players. Look at the St.Louis lineup--Pujols, Holliday, Berkman and Molina are surrounded by positional role players. Really the recognized names other than a few of their pitchers are those four. The Sox have Pedroia, Youk, AGon, CC, and Ellsbury--add Albert as a RH'd bat along with some good role players and you are back in business.

Another typical "Red Sox Nation" thread with no glimmer of reality thinking.
I say we sign all the free agents (Prince Fielder, Jose Reyes, Jimmy Rollins, Jose Bautista, Robinson Cano, Mark Buehrle, Chris Carpenter, Jason Kubel , Ryan Dempster, Edwin Jackson, Roy Oswalt, C.C. Sabathia, Adam Wainwright, Jonny Gomes, Aramis Ramirez, Josh Willingham, Richie Weeks, Brandon Phillips, Aaron Hill. Yadier Molina, Yuniesky Betancourt, Edwin Encarnacion, Nick Swisher, Hideki Matsui, David Ortiz, Aaron Harang, Rafael Furcal, Livan Hernandez, Wandy Rodriguez, Heath Bell, Jonathan Broxton, Francisco Rodriguez, Jose Valverde, Joe Nathan, Brian Fuentes, Javier Vazquez, Vicente Padilla, Joel Piniero, Omar Infante, Freddy Sanchez, C.J. Wilson, Grady Sizemore, Xavier Nady, Jon Garland, Scott Kazmir, Alex Gonzalez, Nate McLouth, Derrek Lee) and call it a day too!
