Red Sox focused on Ordonez

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Red Sox appear to be focusing on Magglio Ordonez in their search for another outfielder.

The Tigers are also interested in keeping Ordonez, and the interest in the free agent is significant enough that there is some chance he could get a multi-year contract. Agent Scott Boras has suggested to some teams that Ordonez could get $18 million for two years, according to sources. Tigers officials insist that they won't give Ordonez any more than one year, and the Red Sox may feel the same way.

The Phillies are also among the teams most interested in Ordonez. Earlier today, a source had suggested that the Orioles were involved, but one official said later that they had pulled out of the bidding, and general manager Andy MacPhail then told MLB.com that they weren't interested.

Ordonez missed time last year with a broken ankle, and some teams have expressed concern that he won't be able to play a full season in the outfield. If he returns to the Tigers, he would play every day but would likely be used as a designated hitter a couple of days a week, on the days when Victor Martinez catches. The Red Sox have a full-time DH in David Ortiz, but they also have a large group of outfielders who could give Ordonez some days off.

Ordonez worked out for the Tigers today. Boras said the workout was designed "to show he's 100 percent. He's ready to go."

The Red Sox talked to the Mets about a possible trade for Carlos Beltran, but sources said that Beltran is farther down their list right now because of injury concerns.

Ordonez fits the Red Sox perfectly.  He is hurt all of the time and the Red Sox are walking wounded, a virtual MASH unit unto themselves.

Ordonez is a .300 hitter, with good power. I know there is a risk. There is also chance of great reward. Like it or not, the sox desperately need a right handed thumper.  I think the plan would be to have him play 140 games max, maybe 135. He could put up a line in 135 games such as 30-0-30 in Boston and drive in 90 runs.  Last year he produced 103 runs in 84 games. He doesn't walk alot but he doesn't strike out much either. Actually walked more times per ab in the shortened year (last year) than I think anytime in his career.
In fact if he started 135 games, he could also PH in some. If anything happened to Ortiz, he would fit nicely as a dh. Sorry but I disagree. I like the idea of adding Ordonez. However, I wouldn't allow Boras to run up the price on me. I would make my offer. Tell Maggs there is an opportunity to go all the way in Boston, and see what happens.
