Ethier trade proposal



Ethier trade

 

To BOS:

 Ethier ,Hawksworth

To LA:

Ellsbury, Lavarnway

 

--We improve team speed and defense, while getting younger and shedding salary.  We also have an extra year of team control with Ellsbury (over Ethier.)  We can move Kemp to RF.  We can also extend Kemp in offseason.

--Outside of Navarro's ability to handle pitching staff, we have ZERO at catcher, unless we somehow struck gold in this year's draft--I doubt this.  We could use a catcher, especially since there will not be as many free agents available at this position in the coming year.  Lavarnway seems worth a risk, though I have not  seen him rated as one of Red Sox top 10 prospects.

--Ethier has expressed interest in leaving LA.  We get more if we trade him now then in the offseason.

--Red Sox need relief pitching and an OF but have expressed interest in moving Ellsbury.

 

What do you guys think?

If we can't get Lavarnway, then maybe we go for Mesoraco??
