Red Sox Trade Target: Justin Wilson

Red Sox Trade Target: Justin Wilson

There is no arguing that this doesn’t make sense, as the Red Sox have gotten astonishingly little from the hot corner in 2017. Filling this hole is almost certainly Dave Dombrowski’s priority, and it almost certainly should be. That being said, I’m looking in a different direction for the Red Sox in this trade period. Just looking at the numbers, Boston has gotten solid production from their bullpen all year...
