In the wake of the Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval news, the most common comment I’ve heard is “well, the Red Sox still need pitching.” About that:

The Red Sox could certainly use him and the Phillies could certainly use, well, anyone, so there is at least a theoretical matchup here. The biggest issue is whether Ruben Amaro, who is reported to be a bit unrealistic about the potential return he can get for his players, will ask for something reasonable in return.
