    I could almost see that happening.

    Red Sox would have to clear space in the OF. Ortiz always DHs, and they've got Drew in RF, Crisp in CF, Manny in LF and Pena and Hinske off the bench.

    what makes you say that, other than the incessant use of the words "somewhat" and "kinda"????

    thanks to the original poster for putting this out there - I'm always interested in trade rumors. Unfortunately, this set kinda, sorta, well you know, at least somewhat seems ridiculous. Probably.

    I think they would move Drew to CF and Crisp to the bench as he's been a total washout.

    The Sox would probably at least be moderately interested in Griffey. From what I've read, they've soured on both Pena and Crisp. They're really looking for a center fielder first and foremost, though, and the big key is what to do with the outfield if they did acquire Griffey. Like pedro said, they'd probably move Drew to center and play Griffey in right.

    Most of the defensive metrics I've seen rate Drew as a good to very good defensive right fielder, but I'm not sure how well he'd be able to play center defensively. He's only had one season where he received a fair amount of innings in center field, and that was way back in 1999. The biggest sticking point is the Sox may not like a defensive outfield of Ramirez/Drew/Griffey ... then again, they could be absolutely content given the offensive potential of that trio.

    Drew did start 28 game sin CF in 2005 for the Dodgers.

    Re: Trade rumors.

    Are there any teams not in contention who have a quality CF to spare that would be an improvement over Crisp or Pena? Not sure what the Sox options are.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    The Sox are rumored to be looking at acquiring Rocco Baldelli.

    Yes he is. I wonder if that has lowered his price tag?

    Nothing personally, but I can see why you are "reluctant". You can always guess a little "truth".

    They've been looking at Rocco Baldelli since he showed up in Tampa Bay.

    It's part Red Sox arrogance combined with "bringing a kid from New England home".

    Maybe the Devil Rays can steal somebody from the Red Sox like they got Kazmir.
