The next order of business for the Red Sox might be to find a righthanded bat to play leftfield. While veteran Mike Cameron is aboard, the Sox may try to add another. After all they were after Jayson Werth for a spell and hoped to add someone of that quality along with Adrian Gonzalez.
One interesting name to ponder is Magglio Ordonez, a free-agent coming off an injury who the Red Sox nearly traded Nomar Garciaparra for. Ordonez is still a very good hitter though it appears the Detroit Tigers may soon make a run to keep him.
The White Sox’ Carlos Quentin is another name, though the price may be steep.
Jermaine Dye, who sat out last year but is planning to return, is also a possibility and someone who is familiar with Terry Francona.
