Red Sox Grab New Shortstop

Today, the Red Sox dealt a minor league player for shortstop, Alex Gonzalez (right) from the Cincinnatti Reds. This year, Gonzalez has a .210 AVG, 3 Hrs, and 26 RBIs, as he is not the best of hitters but an excellent fielder, good defense at short has been something the Sox have been missing out on lately. In 2006, Alex Gonzalez played for the Red Sox and finished with a .255 AVG, 9 HRs, and 50 RBIs, but amazing defense. After beating the Tigers 3-1 in a 4 game series, Boston moves on the Texas for a 3 game series, which could decide the final wild card race. Gonzalez should join the team tommorrow in texas, we hope to see him make an impact!
