One key move for the Red Sox this offseason

The Red Sox ranked 21st in MLB in runs above average, and they produced -0.7 WAR at DH last season, making one of free agency's biggest bats a perfect fit.

The Red Sox have added left-hander Jalen Beeks and righties Chandler Shepherd and Ty Buttrey to the 40-man roster to protect them from being eligible for the Rule 5 Draft. The Sox's 40-man roster is now at capacity.

Finding the best spot for Giancarlo Stanton

Dave Dombrowski has made this kind of franchise-altering slugger acquisition in the past, so it wouldn't be out of character. But here's an issue: Not a single Red Sox player under 30 is locked up past the 2019 season.

Hall of Famer Bobby Doerr batted .409 in his only World Series, but his Red Sox lost in six games to the Cardinals in 1946. In its press release Tue. about Doerr's passing at age 99, the Hall used a classic quote from the popular, clutch-hitting second-baseman: "I like to think good guys can finish first."

William Weinbaum ESPN 

Bobby Doerr, who died Monday at 99, was the oldest living Hall of Famer and, as historian & author Marty Appel points out, the 9-time All-Star second-baseman for the Red Sox was the last surviving MLBer from the 1930s — and no ‘30s Negro Leaguers are left.
