Who will be the next Adrian Beltre?
The Beltre comparison might not be perfect, but let's use the former Red Sox and current Rangers third baseman as an example of the kind of player the Sox can bring in and get tremendous value. All Beltre did in one season in Boston was hit 28 home runs, lead the league with 49 doubles, and drive in 102 runs on a salary of $9 million. The Red Sox should not have let Beltre go, but that's a moot point now. The point this offseason is to find someone who is undervalued (Beltre had hit nine home runs the season before) and take a chance.
