According to Edes in today's Globe...
Wells back to San Diego (possibly with Mirabelli) for Loretta (2B) and Otsuka. I like Loretta. He was my fantasy league 2b two years ago and he was great. He was hurt last year. He's got a good glove and can get on base. However, I think they need more in this trade. Wells was a 15-game winning LEFTY...Mirabelli handles Wakefield and we've seen Varitek give that a go...Yikes...That leaves two large holes...I know Wells is in the last year of the contract, and he might retire if not traded...I don't really have a problem with Loretta for Wells except that I might rather just resign Graffanino...
Other trade possibilities...Soriano for Ramirez...That isn't too bad...It gives us a more than solid leadoff guy if we can't resign Damon. If we can then our top of the lineup looks like this...
Who is the elusive number 3??? Of course if we get Loretta than it shapes up like this...
Soriano LF (there was talk of moving him there)
That looks really good. I'd do that...
Also, it looks like the Sox might try to bring back Olerud for some platooning with Youk...Nice.
Our infield would be
