  1. Jeff Carini says:

    If they can make a trade for Adrian Gonzalez, I think Nady’s the man for the job. 1 year deal with an option. That projected .350 OBP would be just fine at the bottom third of the line-up.

    Here are some left field trade candidates if the Sox look for an alternative to the free agents:

    Delmon Young
    Milton Bradley
    Adam Dunn
    Josh Willingham
    Ryan Ludwick
    Jeremy Hermida
    Mark Teahen

    Bradley has the baggage and a big contract, but his .400+ OBP would fit great in the Sox line-up when healthy.

    Hermida’s still only 25 and could be worth taking a flier on. Cheap contract and it wouldn’t cost the Sox a top prospect.

    Dunn’s a butcher in LF but His OBP and 40+ homeruns would certainly replace Bay’s bat in the line-up. If they can sign Dunn to an extension, they can move him to DH full time in 2011 and Reddick can take over in left. Washington will be looking for a lot in return however.
