Fox’s “baseball insider” Ken Rosenthal continues to have no inside information so he comes up with ridiculous speculations like the Red Sox trading David Ortiz for Jason Giambi:
The other possibility would be a trade, and there would be no shortage of candidates.If the Sox merely confined their search to left-handed hitters in the final years of contracts, they could choose from among the following:
Rick Ankiel (Cardinals), Hank Blalock (Rangers), Jason Giambi (A’s), Brian Giles (Padres), Aubrey Huff (Orioles), Adam LaRoche (Pirates), Chad Tracy (Diamondbacks).
Last week Rosenthal filled up a column with his take on what might have happened if the Rays landed Jason Bay last year. Good thing Fox is paying him big money to get some inside scoop on trades that didn’t happen last year.
