Are The Red Sox Interested In Signing David Freese?

David Freese
Nick Cafardo (of the Red Sox House Organ Boston Globe) is hinting that the team may have interest in free-agent third baseman David Freese. This, despite the fact that they are paying a King's Ransom to have Pablo Sandoval man the 'hot corner'. The theory is that Freese could be a back-up option (though not a strict platoon option) against left-handed pitchers. Of course, Freese is used to a more meaningful role than 'occasional sub'—so it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to bring him to Fenway. Anyway, stay tuned.
