To those who want Hahn to acquire a left-handed hitter with some power:
1. Who should Hahn target?
2. Who should Hahn trade to acquire this player?
It seems to me that left-handed power is becoming more scarce; those teams that have such a hitter worth acquiring won't trade it for what the Sox can offer, without making it, at best, a lateral move for the Sox.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
