The Curious Case of the Boston Redsox

    I am here to talk about the Boston Redsox and how they are starting to turn it around along with some of those bats. Over the offseason, the Redsox were very close to aquiring Adrian Gonzalez. Once the pieces could not be agreed on, they decided to hold off and most people said that they would begin new discussions at the trade deadline expecting the Padres would struggle. But right there is where the problem is. They are off to a very good start and will not be trading their key players. First, I will discuss what we have know.
   If we got another first baseman, one of two situations would have to happen. Youk goes to third and Beltre sits or one or the other plays DH. Adrian Beltre is starting to turn things around as shown with last nights 2 HR and a triple, 6 RBI performance. Also David Ortiz is starting to hit better. 
   Now on to the possible trade possibilites. I have heard Paul Konerko is on the trade block along with Prince Fielder. The Brewers want to get rid of his big contract along with getting some good young pitchers. The White Sox as it seems are in and/or close to rebuilding mode and are probably wishing to get good, young prospects.

Any thoughts?
