Speculation Still Looming: Chris Carter's Name Dropped

One of the players the Boston fanbase and some media are saying is part of the Billy Wagner deal is minor leaguer Chris Carter.

They are citing the dubious, "someone with inside knowledge", but he does seem a likely player "to be named", especially given the Mets first base prospects for 2010, his age (27 in September), and the Red Sox depth at first base throughout their system.

Carter has hit well at every level and made the Red Sox out of Spring Training.

Scouting Report

  • Has very good power potential and a keen eye for bases on balls. Is also adept at hitting the gaps for doubles.
  • Needs to improve his footwork and hands at first base in order to become a regular at the major-league level.
Career Potential
  • A backup first baseman or corner outfielder.

Let me start the flame war by saying I like this guy. He has a big league bat.

I think it's "OK"....really wanted Rizzo. seems like this guy can certainly hit, and he will probably get a TON of at-bats in September....we'll could see 100 at-bats from him in 2009 to see what we've got.
