sox should explore a 3-way! we need a bat, left or right field.. comfortable with victorino being a 4th OF for the rest of the year if he returns.. jbj is a everyday guy as is holt (could alternate at third). move boegy to ss on a regular basis. send betts down, look for better pastures for gomey, and/or carp or nava. but i do get sox interest though.. lest has one year left, phillies just one the A-list draft pick and want cap relief from hamels.. sox like the fact that hamels will have short money going forward (4 years left for 90m after this one when he'll be only age 34). these are the perimeters the sox like. if lest would take 4 years 100m, there could b a deal. also, hamels has sox on his list of teams he wants to b traded to along with yanks, cards, padres and others.
btw, hams and lest numbers are remarkably similar even this year. both are innings eaters.. hams has pitched at least 200 innings in 6 out of last 7 years and is on pace to do the same this year with under 3 era and low WHIP. better deal could b trade lester to LA, get kemp, get hams from philly.. then sox and dodgers give mid to level prospects to philly. as side note, apelpn will b moving as well.. seattle? mets?
