Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: American League

Boston Red Sox: Hanley Rameriez 
The Red Sox only won 20 day games last season, which was the worst total in the entire American League and Hanley Rameriez is a much better hitter in night games.  Over his career, he is batting 33 points better in night games and in a more recent sample he has hit 30 points better at night over the past three seasons.  There is no doubt that Rameriez will add a strong bat to Boston’s lineup, but he is taking over for Yoenis Cespedes in left field and Cespedes, who has hit 22 points better during the day over his career, was one of the only Red Sox last year who had better numbers when the sun was out.
