Yeah, it sure would. And Curtis Granderson can actually play CF while Shin Soo Choo, who is a fine hitter, is really a corner OF. Granderson could help the Sox for the next couple of years and give the Sox the chance to develop some of the OF's at the lower levels of the minors.

What if the Sox did these moves: (1) sign Granderson, (2) trade Alexei Ramirez to St. Louis for Matt Adams and (3) sign Brian McCann or Jarrod Saltalamacchia? The lineup would look like this:

Beckham 2B or Semien SS
Granderson CF
A. Garcia RF
M. Adams 1B
Viciedo LF
McCann/Saltalamacchia C
Dunn DH
Beckham 2B or Semien SS
Gillaspie 3B/Keppinger 3b (platoon)


DeAza OF
L. Garcia IF/OF
Phegley C
Jordan Danks OF

That may still need some work but would be a big improvement over the offense this year.
