Think Dan Johnson is a good choice, he is actually a better more powerful hitter than Casey Kotchman and both played for Joe Maddon who seems to be able to get the most out of players. I think either Johnson or Kotchman is a nice fit for the Red Sox. Not quite certain why some fans did not like what little we saw of Mauro Gomez, although Gomez and Ciriaco are 2 of the only players brought in by Bobby V who impressed.

I wasn't thrilled about Gomez' 99 OPS+ or Ciriaco's 88 OPS+, and neither guy projects to do much better than that in the future. Ciriaco in particular doesn't look promising. I don't think that's impressive. I mean, Ciriaco is impressive in a sense, but not in the sense of wanting him as a starter on your baseball team.
