Frankly I like Bourjos more than Trumbo now that the Sox have acquired Abreu. Not sure if Trumbo is going to stick in the corner OF much longer and frankly, his track record to this point has been a poor man's pre-White Sox Adam Dunn... It would be nice to have a real CF again.

Bourjos is pretty league average/slightly below with the stick. If it's a move to play defense and help the pitching develop, that's good. But he's not the long term solution by any means.

He's only had over 200 PA's once in his 4 year career and batted .270. Small sample size.

Perhaps because he is below average. Those players tend to play less.

Trading one of our lefties not named Sale and extras for C/3B security would be clutch, but I'll take upgrades almost anywhere on the diamond.

I mean, I don't see Bourjos as any kind of world beater, but in his defense, the Angels have had a plethora of high priced, veteran OF for seemingly ever now, so it's not like he's had a lot of chances to break through, either.

But I like his defense and I like his speed, two things that this team has sorely lacked in CF and in the lineup. Even if he isn't an everyday player, he potentially can split time with De Aza so he doesn't break down as he has the last couple of years he's been asked to play everyday. Of course, that would also require a manager with some creativity, which I am not sure we have.

I'm going to agree with you, but only if we don't trade for Matt Kemp instead.

I would prefer a catcher, second baseman or third baseman. We've got arms to work with.
I think it would be unwise to take on Ethier's contract.

Ethier is 32 and has $70 million left on his contract. I can't see the Sox interested in rebuilding with him, especially if they have to give up young pitching to get him. If they want to Danks straight up, maybe that makes some sense.

Ethier's contract is definitely prohibitive, but if there is one team in the league that has recently shown money is not an obstacle to impede their plans, it's the Dodgers.

Whether or not Andre comes here, I have no doubt the Dodgers will deal him this off-season, and likely have to pick up quite a bit of his remaining money.

I would be shocked if the Nationals traded Zimmerman. He's still the face of the team and a fan favorite. He's also unlikely to be a third baseman for much longer, the general feeling in DC is that he will be moved to first base in the near future.
