You may have never heard of him, but you will.
His name is Anthony Rizzo, and he can hit, field, lead and be a major league star. Rizzo is 20 years old and 2 years away from beginning a very long and productive big league career.
He is at exactly the right level for the Red Sox to let him go--High A--he will also be blocked by prospect Lars Anderson, who is more of an elite prospect and "untradeable".
In 2008 he hit .373 in the Sally league.
If Omar does this right, he sheds some payroll in a lost year--a Wilpon mandate--and gets back a prospect that could potentially be a long-term solution at a position of need.
Omar--the Sox are desperate, they want to win now, and they absolutely need Billy Wagner--it's time to earn your paycheck.
