Following a second consecutive last place finish, the Boston Red Sox are looking to remedy their fortunes through off-season acquisitions. It seems like the Red Sox have a need at just about every position from pitching, to outfield, to middle infield. Just about the only position that's, at least somewhat, solid is catching and middle bullpen.

Some are calling for pitching to be addressed, but John Tomase of NBC Sports Boston, along with a few other reporters, think that a trade for San Diego Padres' outfielder Juan Soto might be the antidote to an ailing Boston offense.

While Soto would fix a lot of offensive issues for the Red Sox, it's merely speculation as of right now whether the ownership group of John Henry and co. would even explore the option of acquiring the star right fielder.

Let's weight the pros and cons, shall we?
