Boston Red Sox Wants Marco Scutaro? The Question Is...WHY?!

Amanda BrunoCorrespondent INovember 27, 2009

If you haven't heard, Alex Gonzalez signed a one-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Happy Thanksgiving Red Sox Nation.
What does this mean? Well first off, it means Gonzalez will not be back in a Red Sox uniform. It also means there is currently no everyday proven shortstop on the roster.
There's been talk of acquiring Marco Scutaro from the Jays.
Wouldn't it be something if the two teams just switches shortstops?
Scutaro hit .282, with 12 home runs, 60 runs-batted-in, 35 doubles, 90 walks, 14 stolen bases, and 75 strikeouts. 
He is also 34 years old. 
Why do the Red Sox have a tendency to bring in old ballplayers? This is no time for a quick fix and after last season, half of the fans are probably sick of them (no offense Brad Penny and John Smoltz).
But the problem is who else can the Sox get? Forget J.J. Hardy, who got traded to the Minnesota Twins from the Milwaukee Brewers.
There isn't a lot of there, and I can't believe Theo Epstein let Gonzalez slip away. Unless Gonzo does absolutely poorly in Toronto, then, ok we forgive you. But no the pressure is really on to get someone decent and Scutaro looks like the only option.
