Sox pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo would likely be a part of any deal with the Marlins.
The Red Sox are in desperate need of a shortstop and it seems as if the team regrets sending him to the Marlins in the deal that brought them Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell. The Sox are looking to make a major move this winter and seem to be realizing that Jose Iglesias may not hit enough to be an everyday player.
The Red Sox have the talent to offer the Marlins in a deal for Ramirez. Top starter Anthony Ranaudo would be the first piece of what could end up being a big package of talent. Ranaudo is a potential No. 2 starter, but still needs to show he can turn his potential into production in the minors.
Josh Reddick and or Ryan Kalish could be involved as both are Major League ready and the Marlins have a need in center, where both players could play. Reddick has been solid in the Majors in an extended trial, while Kalish missed most of last year due to injury.
Xander Bogaerts, a shortstop likely to be moved to third base with great power potential, is another guy the Marlins would ask for in return. Talented power and speed combo outfielder Brandon Jacobs, slugging catcher Ryan Lavarnway, and well-rounded third baseman Will Middlebrooks could also interest the team.
The Marlins could potentially load up with promising youngsters and immediately replenish their weak farm system. A pitcher like Ranaudo along with a catcher like Lavarnway and high-celing prospect in Bogaerts is a very nice starting offer for both teams.
