Hart costs us quite a bit defensively but he might well have more dingers than Napoli. It all comes down to cost. Call me crazy but I think Ortiz wasn't all that bad defensively at 1st and we might even consider some guys like Hart or Beltran who could DH some.
I don't know. I don't really like the idea of putting Ortiz in at first more than interleague forces the Sox to. I mean, is it really a good idea to increase his playing time in the field suddenly, at his age? I think Hart is a good option, if the Sox can get him for a short time trial deal. So I guess I am just chiming in to say me too. But oh well.
No, your right, its not smart at all. Papi was very sore after playing in SF. Papi has a good chance of repeating, or coming close to this years numbers again. If he does, you can give him 1yr 14M deals going forward ala Wakefield, only more expensive.
Contrary to some peoples belief, Hart looked good in his 103 games played at 1b. A couple of errors in the beginning, but Improved very quickly after that. There would be no, or little drop off in defense between him and Naps.
I agree that Hart could be a good option for the Sox, Southpaw...Outside of the stats, he has the kind of make up that the Sox Front office looks for as well. You have to like the fact that he said he would give Milwaukee a home town discount since he felt he didn't earn his last contract. That obviously tells you a little bit about his character.
