When the Hamels Deal Will Get Done

3rd baseman Devers should be high on a Phillies demand list from the Bosox for Hamels.


Early line favorites stretching back to last off-season, Boston is seriously struggling, in last place in the AL East and 6 games below the .500 mark. However, in a division where no one is running away, they are just 6.5 out, and just 5 out of the 2nd Wildcard. Problem? A number of teams ahead of them, not all of them will fade. Boston needs to do something, and do it fast, if they want a shot in 2015. The Red Sox have a pair of position prospects who should be on the “must” list in Rafael Devers and Manuel Margot. The add-ins then could include an arm such as Brian Johnson or Matt Barnes, maybe even centerfielder Jackie Bradley Jr.
