Olerud to Boston?

Olerud to Boston?

A source said the Red Sox are talking to the Mariners about a deal that could send first baseman John Olerud to Boston.

Olerud, who has played for the Mariners since 2000, is in the final year of his contract, which pays him $7.7 million this season.

The Red Sox might also be looking for help in the bullpen, after right-hander Scott Williamson left a game Wednesday with an injury. The most likely Mariners relievers to be discussed would be veterans Shigetoshi Hasegawa and Ron Villone.

Why would they want Olerud? He's way on the downside of his hitting career.

But he's still got a great glove. Maybe that's what they want after this recent defensive meltdown.

That's the only reason I would even see them considering such a move. 8-o

Actually, I think this would be good for Boston. Olerud would not cost much and he's solid defensively. Plus, while he's certainly struggled at the plate, he is a lifetime .296 hitter, and Fenway isn't a bad park for this type of hitter.

If the sox could get him for cheap (a mid-level prospect) they should get him because few balls get by him. If I remember correctly, I also remember him being a pretty good "clutch" player.
