IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM IS THE FIRST STEP:

BoSox close in on Wells trade; Padres likely buyer (Buster Olney, 8/31/06, ESPN The Magazine)

The Red Sox moved steadily toward the completion of a trade of veteran left-hander David Wells, identifying Triple-A catcher George Kottaras as the player they want if they complete a deal with the Padres.

Getting a catcher is a terrific idea--it was their fatal weakness this year--but Kottaras is a good hitter with dubious defense.
