Default Thoughts on these FAs for the Sox

OF-Sizemore
RP-Capps
RP-Farnsworth
3B-O.Hudson
RP-M.Lowe
C-Torrealba
RP-Moylan
C-Olivo

Need of some stability behind Flowers, a left handed bat, and a veteran RP.

All these guys are available, and cheap.

Thoughts on them, or anyone else Sox should at least invite to spring training?

Sizemore won't be healthy until at least the All-star break. I wouldn't mind bringing in a relief pitcher and backup catcher though.

There is definitely a need for an experienced back up catcher on this roster.

I would like to sign a reliever or two but I don't know if that will happen. I would have preferred a lefty like Mike Gonzalez or JP Howell (both whom signed cheap, manageable contracts) because then we would have the flexibility to trade Thornton and his contract. Aside from that I would definitely encourage the signing of a Moylan or Capps to fill Myers' hole.

I really do think we should bring in a lefty who's bat belongs in a ML line up. I would even settle for a Seth Smith/David DeJesus/Brandon Moss (not that I would want to buy high on Moss) type. Basically a better version of last year's signing of Fukudome.

I'd prefer a new lefty bat that can play almost full time, since it's near impossible to have all 9 regulars play the whole year - and when they do, like last season, they wear down by the end.

We already have a subpar hitter on the bench in Wise, not sure if we need two.

Personally, I think it's a huge risk going into the season with Flowers as the #1 catcher.

I do also but not much choice at this juncture.

I agree but at this point it is silly to go out and spend money on a free agent catcher. It's time to see what Flowers can do as a starter. Hopefully he surprises us and is a quality starter, otherwise we will have to go out and find someone for 2014.
