Rutledge is going to play second base next year. Plus with the season he had no way the Rockies give him up for Porcello. I wouldn't either if i was them. This guy is going to be a very good player.
I do agree that Ellsbury, Hunter and Jackson would be just about the best outfield if not the best in baseball. I doubt we have nearly enough to get him from Boston. Its nice to dream but evenually we have to wake up. Boston doesn't need NC. They have Middlebrooks for years to come. They already have the foundation of Dubront, Buchholz and Lester for pitching. They would take Perralta as a down payment but who plays short for us? We make that deal and we don't have anybody left to make a trade to get a shortstop unless we can sign Drew first.
