I wonder if it's a good deal for the Sox. I think not, really. I'll do Adams for Alexei, though.
I'd love to have Matt Adams, the big boy can rake -- reminds me of Billy Butler. But the other two bullpen guys? No thanks. Personally, I'd rather take a chance on a couple of single A starters, B- or C+ grade types that might not ever make it, than MLB ready bullpen arms.
