Trading for Asdrubal Cabrera would give the Red Sox an All-Star caliber plater.
Trading for Asdrubal Cabrera would stop what has been a proverbial revolving door since the Red Sox traded Nomar Garciaparra in 2004.
The team has tried numerous times to fill the big shoes that were left by the beloved Nomar, but has failed at almost every attempt.
First it was Edgar Renteria, who could hit, but committed 30 errors and clearly had trouble dealing with the pressure in Boston.
The Red Sox almost got it right with Alex Gonzalez, but they let him go and then realized it and traded for him three years later.
Aside from Gonzalez, the only other player that had success with the Red Sox was Marco Scutaro.
Scutaro was only a decent fielder, but he was a difficult out at the plate, always working the count.
Trading for Cabrera would give the Red Sox a player who is both better and younger than Scutaro.
