I beleive that WMP will go in a Beckett/Lowell type deal. Theo will tell whoever" If you want (insert name here), you must also take Pena."
As I see the needs right now..
#1 Right handed outfielder/hitter to come off the bench in late innings or to spell who ever needs a rest when the sox are facing a lefty.
#2 A high prospect catcher. Kottaras is not going to be a #1 in the majors. He will bea back up at best..
#3. A right handed set-up man for the pen. Donnely may be that gut for now but the looking beyond 2007, I don't see that guy in the Sox minor league system.
I foresee the following for 2008
Starting Pitchers: Beckett, Dice K, Lester, Bucholz, Gabbard
Bullpen: Papelbon, Okajima, Lopez, Snyder, Tavarez, DelCarmen, new guy from trade
Outfielders: Ellsbury, Crisp, Drew, Moss, Hinske.
Infielders: Youklis, Pedroia, Lugo, New Guy (1b or 3b), Cora
Catchers: Varitek, Kottaras
