Wants and Needs – Outfield

Outfield – Nothing against Daniel Nava, Darnell McDonald and Bill Hall, but these 3 just shouldn’t be starting for the Boston Red Sox.  Hall has proven versitile, but his .735 OPS isn’t cutting it.  Nava is a great story and might just do some things at the Major League level, but the Red Sox can’t afford to let him play with all the other injuries reducing the line-up’s potentcy.  McDonald is a great candidate, next year, for the 4th OF spot.  He can play all 3 positions reasonable well but his bat just isn’t going to cut it in a starting role.  The Red Sox need Jacoby Ellsbury to get health and for Mike Cameron to continue on his hot July (1.020 OPS).  If the Red Sox accounting department plans on writing off Ellsbury this year, a trade is in order to boost the offensive production.
