Even if the Sox hang on to Coco, as I support, the club should be more concerned about bringing in a RHB to complement J.D. Drew instead of a LHB to back up the corner infield spots. A Bobby Kielty type - a RHB that can handle right field at Fenway - is going to have more impact than an Eric Hinske (how many times would he pinch hit for Julio Lugo) and is tougher to find in the summer. Plus, the Olde Towne Team has not one, but two in-house southpaw possibilities at first - Brandon Moss and Chris Carter.

The ideal player would be switch hitter with experience in right and first like the Pirates Ryan Doumit. He has also caught. Baseball Prospectus' John Perrotto reported that the Sox had “interest” but the Pitt was “reluctant to part with him.” The Pirates Xavier Nady would fit in well too. Former Sox minor leaguer, Matt Murton, is rumored to be on the trading block by numerous news outlets. The Cubs bringing in a high priced Japanese import sealed Murton’s future will not be on the north side. The Pads would be the Sox stiffest competition for the outfielder. But Theo can dangle Julian Tavarez’s reasonable salary and versatility along with varying minor league options to acquire a RHB for right. Or he and Tito could just ensure Kielty that he will play against southpaw starters and secure his services with a two-year contract.
