    Future Power Hitter?

    If you are going to trade a few prospects to land a power Bat. I have a few names out there:


     


     


     


    #1, Kris Bryant-3b (Cubs) 0.001% chance of landing him.


     


     


     


    #2, Evan Longoria-3b (Rays) He would be a monster at Fenway Park and he is only 28 years old.


     


     


     


    #3, Nolan Arenado-3b (Rockies) His power improving as time goes on.

    Yes but it the Rays. It would take a lot to land him. There is also Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies same age as Longoria. However, Carlos is a lefty and we need a right handed batter.

    David Wright could be a possibility, the rest forget it. Theo ain't giving Bryant up, Longoroa has a great contract, Rockies  never sure about their Power hitters because its Colorado.  Except for Tulo.

    1-No chance

    2-Longoria is 28 not 25, and only a ,762 at Fenway

    3-Arenado is a good prospect, but he has -0- HRs this year away from Coors.

    4-Wright has 100 HRs in the last 6 seasons, about 17 a year.

    Longoria kills the Sox, always has. Would love to have him. He's cheap now. Never get him.

    Longoria was born in 1985 which makes him 28 right.

    [/QUOTE]


    If we have righties on the corners in the OF (Cespedes and Craig) as well as righties in the entire infield(Middy, Xander, Vazquez and Napoli) remind me again why we need righties and why a speedy 28 year old lefty with decent power for CF (where Ellsbury roamed for years) is not a need?

    Carlos Gonzalez is a perfect Red Sox trade candidate. He's having a down year but is a career .294/.351/.871 hitter who provides about 25 HR's, 85 RBI's and runs scored, 20 steals, 25 doubles and 5 triples a season. He has some injury concerns, having only played three full seasons in his six year career and never over 145 games, very Victorino-like. But unlike Shane would be in his age 29 season coming here on a 3 year contract for 3 seasons through age 31. Victorino came here at 32. Shane hit 18 HR's and played in 147 games at 29.

    Gonzalez will be the same age Ellsbury was entering his walk year here. I'm pretty sure before going to arbitration winter of 2012-13 if the Sox could have extended Ells at 3 years 53 million they would have done it in a heartbeat. That is what Gonzalez makes the next 3 years and his a pretty slick fielder.

    Betts, JBJ, Webster and Victorino (to help alleviate the salary issues in our OF) for Gonzalez

    2012-13 numbers from all these guys and this is a SCARY lineup

    I assumed Pedey and Papi really want to hit 2nd and 3rd where they always have in going with this lineup:

    SS - Xander

    2B - Pedroia

    DH - Ortiz

    RF - Cespedes

    1B - Napoli

    CF - Gonzalez

    LF - Craig

    3B - Middlebrooks

    C - Vazquez

    15 HR's, 75 RBI, .310/.385ish avg OBP and about 100 runs scores each for Xander/Pedey

    30/110 .270/.360ish for Papi/Cespedes

    .290/.350ish for Craig and Gonzalez, .250/.380 for Naps, 20-25 HR and 80-90 RBI each

    Get 30 HR, 115 RBI's combined from Middy and Vazquez hitting .250/.335ish.

    THAT is a 700 run team

    They just added Cespedes and Craig to go with an aging Ortiz, I'd say the need for a left handed hitter with power is greater.

    Castillo is a righty, a short, stocky free swinger with 25 HR power in Cuba translating to 12-15 HR's here. Think Brett Gardner. 

    Gonzalez is a proven commodity and a lefty.

    I'd rather have Jackie Bradley Jr. on year 2 of his rookie deal than have to outbid other teams for Castillo and post almost 10 million a year for him.

    If the Rockies will swap 16 million of Gonzalez for 13 million of Victorino next year I would gladly give them Betts, JBJ and Webster.

    Carlos Gonzalez is a very good player. But reality is he always lands on the DL. I would love to get him but not if Betts is included.
