    The Missing Link

    Why are there rumors that the Sox are interested in Adam LaRoche? Is that what is needed? Another slow first baseman-type clogging up the basepaths? Isn't that what Adam Dunn was?

    Because when you're a team trying to rebuild, you try to fill in the spots that you need the most, and first base seems to be .....oh, wait...never mind Embarassed

    Left handed power bat for DH. Decent defense at first, allows Abreau to DH some. Not the worst idea on a 2 year deal. If the other DH option is Viciedo, I am all for it.

    If you can somehow trade Viciedo, I'd be okay with it.

    You don't have to trade Viciedo, just dump him and save the 5 mil he is going to get in arbitration.

    On a team that needs bullpen help, more starting pitching, a 2bman, 3bman, catchers and an outfielder, picking up a DH/1b, so the All-Star one you have can take a break now and then, seems like a move you make when all the above are fixed. Or, a move to make just to make a move. Plus he's going on 35 and his main asset is power numbers and we all know from Roger what happens to power hitters in their 30s .

    $5 million!  Holy shit.  I don't mind a guy like him being around.  He serves a purpose, but there's really no part of the game where he's a "good player."  He's a bad hitter.  A bad fielder.  Bad eye.  Low OBP.  Has a little power, I guess.  Gotta wonder if he is a non-tender risk.

    Viciedo will compete with Beckham as the prize of the non tender list
