    Re: who is our new outfielder ?

    Napoli would be that power bat in the lineup and now Sox have to extend a year on that previous offer to Napol thanks to Martin leaving the Yankees for the Bucsi.  I would say 3 yr + 4th yr as player option might work IMO.  And I really don't see Ben giving Ross 3 yrs after signing Gomes to 2 yrs.  I think it's either Ross taking 2 yr deal (perhaps 3rd yr team option) or Sox signing Swisher who will play both 1B and RF which gives more time to catch for Napoli/Ross and make Salty available for a trade since Salty's value is keep increasing due to the limited market.

    These five OF's are the rumour talk as of late:

    Josh Hamilton 32 yrs. old pending how long the contract will be 4 year contract yes

    Shane Victorino is flying low under the sox radar

    Mike Morse could be reasonable candidate for a trade since the Nats made a deal yesterday

    Cody Ross will be a smart choice to resign

    Nick Swisher a power switch hitter is always someone to have in the line up

    December and January will be the months for signing FA's and trades

    Manny Ramirez is arguably one of the top 5 or 10 right handed hitters in baseball history, so "replacing" him is next to impossible.  People scheduled beer runs and bathroom breaks around his at bats.  While Napoli is certainly not the pure hitter Agon is, if healthy, and with less wear and tear from catching much less, I'd be willing to bet he'd hit more home runs and have a comparable OBP.

    Not sure about a .400 OBP, but comparable HR, absolutely...

    Please, not Swisher!

    Yanks hid him in Little League RF. Terrible fielder. Imagine Gomes, and/or Ross with Swisher? Worst OF in MLB.

    Does Ben know he can solve things by trading, instead of overprice, overaged free agents?

    Yeah, a .400 OBP might be a stretch, but it was .414 in 2011 & even though he hit .227 last year, his OBP was still .343, which is pretty solid for an injury plagued down year.

    I can see Naps with a respectable .350+ OBP and 25 HR. Maybe not a high AVG, but not as low as it was last year. More in the .260-70 range

    I understand the reservations about Hamilton playing in a big City environment and some injuries, but I think the Sox are crazy not to be going after him anyway. Even missing 30 games he will hit more homeruns and drive in more runs than any one else on the team. Waiting to see if the Market is soft for him dooms you to losing him, becuase then you are dealing with a guy who is dissatisfied....on the other hand showing strong interest now.....tellling him how you want him to be a leader on this team, allows you to negotiate with him openly.....give him the $ he wats for 3 years.....with reachable options for 2 more years, based upon sobriety and games played....osh seems to be pretty practical when it comes to his failings.....he will understand why teams cant go long term deals without being sure and he might be that way with the team that shows strong interest now.

    I think he might want more than 3 guarenteed years. My guess is no less than 4 with maybe a couple options or vesting years...

    Does anyone realize that Dallas-Fort Worth is almost 2 million people? A lot bigger than Boston. So, where is this Boston= big city, Dallas FW= small town, come from?????

    I think it has more to do with the shark tank commonly referred to as the boston media than the size of the city.

    Don't forget. The Sox have Middlebrooks coming back. He was on a 30-HR pace when he got hurt. I'm not saying he would have hit 30 last year, but he certainly has shown he's a middle-of-the-order bat.
