What would you do as Red Sox G.M. now that Edgar Renteria has been dealt for Andy Marte? Personally, here is my to-do list:
- Trade Mike Lowell to the Twins for Kyle Lohse and J.C. Romero, like Aaron Gleeman has been advocating forever now.
- Play Kevin Youkilis at third base until Andy Marte is prepared for the everyday job.
- Shift Mark Loretta to shortstop if possible at this stage in his career (he last played there in 2003)
- Re-sign Tony Graffanino to play second base or if Oakland is still interested in David Wells, attempt to snag Marco Scutaro in the deal, even if it means adding a minor leaguer. That is just thinking though, there is nothing behind that statement. Graffanino is a league average defensive shortstop in his career by the way.
What would you do if you were Red Sox G.M.? That is not a complete list by me by the way; just an attempt to fix the infield.
