"I think the Sox are done making moves, but man, signing Joc Pederson or Michael Brantley would just make this lineup ridiculous. Nothing against Engel, coming off the best offensive season of his career, but he’s a non-hitter better suited for the role of fifth outfielder and defensive replacement. Adding a free-agent outfielder would also strengthen a weak bench."
