In response to Beantowne's comment:
If we start with the end in mind all of them are players that fit a need.
Need: Righthanded Power Hitter(LF) 5th outfielder...
1B: Job Opening
Need Power Hitting 1B-Utility Infieler (Ciriaco)
Need: 4th and 5th starters/organizational depth...
Breslow will certainly be in the pen opening day, unless traded. Atchison may squeeze in as well. I think we will see someone in the pen dealt this winter, most likely Aceves.
Aceves and one of our LHP. We dont need 4. Morales would bring something nice back as well...
Trade Ellsbury for Morse (rh hitter 62 RBI's avg. .291 but this the national league one thing that i am skeptical about) to Nats for Morse who can play both LF and 1B. Then go sign Hunter (2 year deal) for outfield experience and let the OF prospects work their way into the big league.
The Cody Ross signing will be no worry for sox if this deal is done.
Then we have spot fill for 1B and LF option and Hunter could play center field to replace Ells.
