Kyle Schwarber May Be Another Red Sox Target Bat

Yeeesh! Is that what we really need? A fat guy who hits .211? Multiple reports suggest that the Red Sox have strong interest in trading for Chicago Cubs OF Kyle Schwarber. While the 24-year-old did hit 30 HRs last year, he does not hit for average and makes the late Red Sox first-baseman Dick Stuart look like Brooks Robinson in the field. Another impediment to any trade is the fact that Theo Epstein has a huge man-crush on Schwarber. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Schwarber played college ball at Indiana with Red Sox prospect Sam Travis—but that's not enough to overcome his serious deficiencies. Also, Theo is likely to ask for the moon to part with one of his binkies. Do not make this trade!
