Suggestion to the Redsox
In the first-part of my suggestion series I have a suggestion to the Redsox.
The Redsox need a capable MLB shortstop that can play every day. Sure, Nick Green has been pretty good, but they need a starting shortstop. The Redsox did claim Christian Guzman off waivers, but we do not know what will become of that. Guzman, 31, has 2 years (including this year) left on his contract. I do not believe he is the answer.
What I do believe is that the Redsox need to trade a top prospect, such as a Michael Bowden, Lars Anderson, or even Jacoby Ellsbury for Yunel Escobar of the Braves.
While I do not know if the Ellsbury-Escobar trade would work salary and teams agreeing wise, I do believe this fits the needs of both teams. The Braves need an MLB Outfielder that is young and lively, while the Redsox need a shortstop of the same kind. I would do it if I was either team, personally.
