Rebuilding Red Sox Sign Cuban Star
Cuban powerhouse Yoan Moncada signed two weeks ago with the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox continue to improve their offense, by adding the swift, agile Cuban outfielder and signing him to the largest signing bonus one has ever heard of, 31.5 million dollars; the largest among any international free - agent this year and before. Boston, with the signing of Yoan Moncada, adds him to a superior lineup that consists already of David " Papi" Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez. However, some beat reporters now claim that with all the offense the Red Sox have compiled, they have not been addressing their weak, young pitching staff. In addition, the Red Sox's chance of reclaiming the AL East title have improved steadily. Yoan Moncada has been described as one of the powerful outfielders, with " Wheels," a " Hose," as an arm, and a fantastic swing. For his first showcase, about 65 scouts from around Major League Baseball came to determine whether this super - charged prospect was living up to the speculation around him. I think we all know the conclusion to that story. Please comment on who you think will win the AL East division title.
