Probably because of his low OBP. He's not great. But he's a solid power hitter that would probably hit 40+ HR's in Fenway. Ellsbury only has 1 year left on his contract and he's as good as gone so it would probably benefit the Sox more than most believe. I'd love to have Ellsbury on the Angels
I know how you feel I left my sally straps at the gym, they better be there when I come in today.

That's why I brought it up. Trumbo's really a first baseman. That would make Napoli the catcher, Trumbo the first baseman, Papi the DH and Victorino the RF'er.
The Sox still have Salty and Lavarnway. And they signed David Ross. So they have 3 catchers already. Though the majority believes Salty will be traded. I know Napoli wants to catch but the Sox signed him to play 1st.
I really have no idea what the Sox' plans are but it's fun to watch. I just hope they put a competitive team on the field in 2013.
