This is along the lines of what I was interesting in hearing about the Sox new 1B prospect Chris Carter, acquired for Wily Mo. And, this is from the Legend himself, my hero, Peter Gammons:
Carter is an interesting acquisition, because he's always hit and because the Red Sox are looking for a first baseman. Scouts I talked to seem to feel that he's most likely going to have to be a designated hitter, a position that's already filled in Boston. But there's no harm in taking that bat and taking a chance.
