Red Sox Whiff On Another Bat: Marcell Ozuna to Cards

Stop us if you've heard this one before: the Red Sox missed out on another opportunity to acquire a big bat. Today, the St. Louis Cardinals traded for Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna (who hit .312 last year with 37 HRs and 124 RBIs). The Marlins get back some mixture of Sandy Alcantara, Dakota Hudson, Jack Flaherty (all three Top 10 Cardinal prospects) and major-leaguer Randal Grichuk. While an equivalent haul of Red Sox prospects would probably have been prohibitive—that's part of the problem (an already depleted farm system). So, the Winter Meetings Of Our Discontent continue!
