I predict one of these two players will be added to our roster. Probably the less expensive Swisher because of his ability to play 1B and OF which is fine. He hits very well at fenway and should give us even more depth.
I prefer Hamilton, especially if we don't find better starting pitching but Josh may still be holding out for Texas to give in, where he can remain with friends and family.
We will not see Hamilton go to Boston ( Red Sox do not want to spend that type of money). Gomes Ellsbury Victorino and ( prospects are going to get their turn next season) will be the OF as of now live with it. As for now Swisher will not happen. BC did his job at the winter meetings fill in a few holes.
Cherington, hopefully from my perception pitching strength is the most important now. The reality is the pitching at the moment is very very very unstable. Lester bad year, Bucholtz will he be consistent, Lackey coming off major surgery, Doubront is going into his second year. From here we have other starters with a shot in dark evaluation who knows what they will bring next year.
If the sox can trade Ellsbury and ? for consistent pitcher then go after a power hitter such as Hamilton.
PS I am getting sick of threads mentioning Hamilton Hamilton Hamilton, Swisher Swisher Swisher. Just my opinion I do not want these players here.
I think the Sox should sign this guy http://www.gbso.net/actor/d0074/I32598.html
a 2 for 1 deal ;)
