Will James Loney stick at first base?
Remember when Red Sox prospect Lars Anderson was stuck behind Adrian Gonzalez at first base? Both Anderson and Gonzalez are gone, and there's now a fairly sizable hole at the position. James Loney (.254/.302/.344) will make Sox fans miss the days of Gonzalez hitting beautiful singles to left-center field. The Red Sox will probably need to fill the position with outside help. Adam Laroche, Justin Morneau, and Lance Berkman could all be good fits, though there are risks associated with each player.
