'Dealin' Dave': Our NationTurns Its Lonely Eyes To You!

We Need More Homers!
It's almost December and 'Dealin' Dave Dombrowski has not yet made a substantive move to improve the offensive black hole in your 2018 Carmine Hose. It was December 6th of last year that Double D pulled off the Chris Sale trade—sending top prospects Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech, et. al. to The Windy City. We'd say that deal turned out pretty well. This off-season, Dombrowski's chief mission is to bolster an anemic Red Sox offense—one that was dead last in the AL in HRs (168). By contrast, The Evil Ones topped the league with 241 HRs—seventy-three more. Clearly, a trade for Giancarlo Stanton (which is either imminent or an impossible long-shot) would dramatically improve that HR output—heck, Boston players would be in scoring position in the on-deck circle! Alternatively, free-agent acquisitions like J.D. Martinez and/or Carlos Santana would also up the power quotient. But, DD needs to do something—and quickly!
