REPORT: Red Sox Talking To Adam LaRoche

Back In A Boston Uniform?
According to a new report by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Red Sox are now actively turning their attention to Adam LaRoche. As Mike Napoli's hip saga drags on, it's become increasingly clear that Boston needs a first base option they can count on. According to Rosenthal, the talks are involve both two- and three-year deals. This could be a negotiating ploy on the part of the NOG—forcing Napoli to accept reduced terms. Hopefully, it's a real pursuit and Boston simply walks away from what was always a flawed deal with Napoli. LaRoche would cost the Red Sox their second round draft pick (the first round pick is protected because they stunk so badly last year—finishing in the bottom ten in all of MLB).
