    The Boston Red Sox have acquired second baseman Todd Walker from the Cincinnati Reds for two minor league players to be named

    Walker hit .299 last season for the Reds with 11 home runs and 64 RBI.

    The announcement of the minor leaguers probably will wait until after the Rule 5 draft on Monday.

    That probably means Barry Larkin will move to second, Aaron Boone will be the everyday shortstop and we will get 162 games of Russel Branyan at third. Well, he should be good for 250 strikeouts over a full season.

    What 2 may we expect ??? This would be great if we turn around and get Castillo (yea, right) Larkin will not move to second. Larson will (if we get no one else). Again, a move that doesn't address our number ONE need which is an ACE.

    Branyan won't be ready by Opening Day, and you're forgetting about Brandon Larson.

    Oh boy, 2 minor league 5-tooled outfielers, no doubt.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    How 'bout Freddy Sanchez? Probably not. The BoSox are probably getting Todd to keep the position warm for Freddy in '04.

    4. Freddy Sanchez, ss/2b

    Age: 24. B-T: R-R. Ht.: 5-11. Wt.: 185. Drafted: Oklahoma City, 2000 (11th round). Signed by: Ernie Jacobs.

    Background: After leading all minor league shortstops with a .334 average in 2001, Sanchez proved that performance was no fluke. He made the Double-A Eastern League all-star team, was Triple-A Pawtucketís player of the year and drilled a two-run single in his first big league at-bat.

    Strengths: Sanchez has excellent hand-eye coordination and the ability to make consistent line-drive contact and hit for gap power. His instincts enhance his physical skills at the plate, on the bases and in the field. He has a solid average arm at shortstop and reads balls well off the bat.

    Weaknesses: The knock on Sanchez always has been that he lacks pure shortstop range, though thatís a moot point with Garciaparra in Boston. The Red Sox believe Sanchez could play short if needed. After making strides with his selectivity in Double-A, he regressed in Triple-A and the majors.

    The Future: A longshot to win Bostonís second-base job in spring training 2002, Sanchez is a frontrunner to become the starter in 2003. Heís playing second base in Mexico this offseason to help his cause.

    Freddy Sanchez, Freddy Sanchez, Freddy Sanchez.

    Just keep saying the name. Can't imagine he's not in the deal.

    The Sox have a lot of A ball arms who might be with him (I assuming it's not Casey Fossum because it says minor league PTBNL). Billy Simon, 6'6" with velocity would be nice.

    Guerns, if the Sox were going to give the job to Sanchez they'd have probably done it in 2003. IMO, Hanley Ramirez is the heir apparent at that spot and the Sox will go year-to-year until he shows.

    Nah, it'll be two pitchers who JimBo projects to be 12-15 game winners (like Ed Yarnall & Brian Reith).

    Walker would not bring us a ace, and I doubt any of these prospects will turn into a Ace, but the 3,000,000 or so that Walker gets paid next year could go to a ace.

    If these kind of trades keep Griffey, Dunn, Kearns and maybe even Casey a Red, then I am all for it.

    If we get Castillo, I agree, this one's a coup.
