Red Sox bolster lineup with Beltre

News broke last night the Red Sox signed third baseman Adrian Beltre to a one-year, $9 million deal.

Take a look at Beltre’s stats. He’s really dropped off since his career year in 2004 with the Dodgers. He didn’t bring his bat to the Mariners when he signed a five-year, $64 million contract with them, but he did take home two Gold Gloves.

I knew they were going to make an upgrade before I did my lineup comparison to the Yankees. WEEI.com is reporting the Red Sox will try and trade Mike Lowell (broken thumb) now. They were close to dealing him to the Rangers but he failed a physical because of the thumb so the deal didn’t go through.
