Red Sox: They are aggressively seeking hitting help, according to competitors, and the guess of other GMs is that they won't wait until the deadline to do something. There is no exact deadline on former superstar David Ortiz to start to hit, but every day that goes by appears to bring them a day closer to doing something. A .185 batting average just isn't cutting it. Hanley Ramirez would be Theo Epstein's ultimate (re-)acquisition, possibly followed by Adrian Gonzalez ... but now that we are out of the daydreaming part of our day, the best player they might have a realistic shot at might be Indians catcher Victor Martinez. Sabathia said he'd be surprised if the Indians would trade Martinez, a favorite of Indians people. But if they do, Boston has just the sort of young pitching package to make it work for Cleveland, including Clay Buchholz (possibly untouchable), Justin Masterson and Michael Bowden. Aubrey Huff and the Washington trio of Nick Johnson, Adam Dunn and Josh Willingham are four more of many somewhat lesser possibilities in what looks like a fairly deep hitting market.
