Re: In the long run-who is more valuable to this team---Reddick or Kalish?

I am anxious to see three guys that might have an eventual impact:
Lin, Linares and Hassan. Further down in A and AA--Brentz may be the RF solution in another year or two.
The question I have is whether the Sox would say to CC we're going to have you work out in RF during ST and give Lavarnway some innings in LF for the good of the team. You've got to have "the new kid" in the lineup with his bat every day.
If Ben is planning to keep Salty, he has to play 5 games a week behind the plate and Lav the other two.
Opening Day Lineup:
Subs: Aviles, Punto, Dan Butler, Lin or DMac
Rotation: Lester, Buch, Gavin Floyd, Colby Lewis, Wilson.
Pen: Aceves, Bard, Jenks, Melancon, Morales, Matt Thornton
Sox will TRADE Beckett to Texas for Colby Lewis and two prospects.
Sox will trade Doubrount, Reddick, Iggy and two prospects to the White Sox for Floyd and Thornton.
