Ken Rosenthal: Hanrahan trade completed. Melancon involved.

The most charitable interpretation I can make of this set of events, is that the Red Sox really WANTED to add an extra outfield bat, and/or an extra starting pitcher, but concluded they couldn't. So, hey, might as well spend the money on Hanrahan. The bright side of this is, the Sox now have excess at catcher, relief, outfield, and a bit of second-tier prospect depth that may be setting up a trade.
