More from Rotoworld.
Red Sox acquired second baseman Todd Walker from the Reds for two players to be named.
Spending $3.4 million on a platoon second baseman just isn't a good idea for Boston, but it's unlikely that they gave up much to get Walker away from the Reds. To replace Walker, Cincinnati could switch Aaron Boone to second base and use Brandon Larson as their third baseman next season, giving Russell Branyan a chance to compete with Larson once he's healthy. The Reds could also pick up one of the inexpensive second basemen about to be non-tendered -- Carlos Febles or Ronnie Belliard -- or try to acquire Marcus Giles from the Braves.
I like the Marcus Giles idea. Put me down for that one. If we get Giles, I retract my previous post. I would forget about Walker on opening day.
