I think the Red Sox should absolutely get Mike Napoli. He's a diverse player that can play 1st Base/Catcher and has a great swing for Fenway (the guy's a Red Sox killer). I wouldn't mind a Ross/Lavarnway tandem for Catcher. Ross could mentor Lavarnway as some of you have said.
Now the outfield issue could be a problem. There is a good chance Ellsbury does not get traded this offseason, maybe before the trade deadline, but we still need two more outfielders. I say sign Torii Hunter to a 2 year deal and/or re-sign Cody Ross for a 2 year deal. I say this because I would trade Salty++(whatever the "+" will be) for Justin Masterson and Shin-Soo Choo. If we do that sort of trade, we get a starter for our starting rotation, but Choo's contract is also up at the end of the year like Ellsbury and we won't have two outfielders at the end of next season unless either wants to re-sign. Wost case scenario, Choo and Ellsbury leave next year and we get draft picks. I don't know it's just an idea.
