Chad Finn today in his article mention a question for the Sox fans high risk low risk players.
My answer Hamilton will be a high risk and he is left hitting batter same as Papi, if the Sox sign Josh this means the sox will need to go find a power RH batter for the sox home games. What is your view on Finn's suggestions?
Finn's low risk commodity is Lance Berkman, who i believe is older than most 1B that the sox's are pursuing but Lance is good low risk player. What is your opinion on this move?
