Maholm would be a disaster in the AL.
I would not unless they bring in a big $$$ pitcher via trade or UFA
Sox have no one in system that projects to be a starter ready outside of Hernandez maybe and Floyd gives them depth in rotation
Also it is likely Peavy is gone after this year (Take a look at his option)
My expectation is that KW wants Grienke at deadline and wants to extend him and have him as part of big 4 for Sox going forward using Floyd/Peavy costs to cover the extension to Grienke
Sale-Greinke-Quintana-Danks-? for 2013
I would expect in that scenario for Pedro Hernandez who Sox are high on to be the #5 starter
Doubt we get Greinke but I have no doubt that part of Kenny's plan if he were to acquire him would be to give him longterm extension
