The Red Sox's rumors will not stop coming. Now, Oakland's Bobby Crosby, Atlanta's Yunel Escobar, and Anaheim's Erick Aybar are being mentioned.

Previously, the Red Sox were rumored to be interested in shortstops Jason Donald, JJ Hardy, Miguel Tejada, Orlando Cabrera, and Jack Wilson, along with hitters Adam Dunn, Josh Willingham, Nick Johnson, and Jeff Francouer.

I would personally want Escobar more than Aybar and Crosby, but Crosby would be all right, and better defensively. They would all be better than Julio Lugo.

So far this season, Crosby is hitting .198 with two home runs, and 12 RBI. He has 25 hits in 45 games.

Aybar is a better defensive shortstop than Crosby and Escobar, and is actually hitting better than the usually good hitting Crosby. Aybar is hitting .283 with one home run, and 14 RBI. He has 41 hits in 41 games.

Escobar is the best of this bunch offensively, hitting .289 with five home runs with 29 RBI with 56 hits in 47 games.
