Kendrys Morales Another Sox First Base Option

As the Mike Napoli deal gets closer and closer to total implosion, most pundits have been pointing to either Adam LaRoche or Nick Swisher as alternatives. But, another possibility could actually result in the Red Sox acquiring someone under 30. Think of it! Kendrys Morales is the 29-year old Angels first baseman who is highly expendable given the recent moves by the Halos. It's been reported that "several" other AL teams were already in on Morales—back when it appeared the Red Sox were set at first base with Napoli. If the Red Sox become another interested team, the Angles can look for even more value in return for Morales—who hit .273 with 22 HRs last year.
