REPORT: Red Sox Could Sign Three Top Free Agents

According to an analysis by, the Red Sox could very well sign three of the Top 15 Free Agents on the market this Winter. Specifically, the website predicts that Boston will sign:
J.D. Martinez (#2 ranked free agent, for 6 years $150 million); Eric Hosmer (#3 ranked free agent, for 6 years $132 million); and Logan Morrison (#15 ranked free agent, for 3 years, $36 million). Given the various positions of each of these players, there seems to be some confusing overlap—but presumably, signing these three would require moving some players in separate trade transactions (e.g., Jackie Bradley, Jr.). Also, these moves would presuppose the loss of Mitch Moreland to free agency.
