Default Werth to Nats, Gonzales to Sox

Gonzalez is a three-time All-Star who hit .298 with 31 homers and 101 RBIs last season. In five seasons with San Diego, Gonzalez has 161 homers and 501 RBIs. Including parts of two seasons with Texas, he has 168 homers and 525 RBIs.

"He's one of very best hitters in the game, left-handed hitter, tremendous ability to control the strike zone, hit for power, power to all fields," Epstein said. "His natural stroke is to the opposite field, which is a great fit for our ballpark. He hits the ball the other way, so he'll be using the wall, and we think he'll wear the wall out going from [pitcher friendly] Petco [Park] to Fenway Park."


Great pickup by the Sox: http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/mlb...ory?id=5890951 The Yanks have to be concerned now. Cliff Lee, they need you!

Meanwhile, the Nats signing Jayson Werth is drawing some criticism: https://www.sports-central.org/sport...t_worth_it.php

Who's next?

The Yankees need Lee a lot worse than he needs them. I hope he signs with the Rangers.
As to Werth to the Nats, he could be a very good fit there. Yes his contract is pretty expensive, but he could give them some great leadership on the field.
AGon could be just what the dr ordered for the Red Sox. They could use a right-handed hitter now, though.

Probably not, NAR. They have Youk to play 3B and they can use the draft picks. Especially with Crawford coming in at $142MM and AGon getting $160MM.
