Sox New Players, Part 3 (Last Part)

This is Part 3 of my series on the Boston Red Sox’s big trades in the 2009-2010 off-season. On January 7, 2010, Adrian Beltre signed a 1-year, $9 million deal with the Sox, which has a $5 million player option for 2011 with a $1 million buyout. Beltre was born April 7, 1979 in the Dominican Republic. The Los Angeles Dodgers signed him out of the Dominican Republic in 1914. Beltre debuted with the Dodgers in the 1998 season at age 19. Adrian played seven good years with the Dodgers.  In 2004 he was the AL MVP and a silver slugger winner, but in early 2004 he was granted free agency. Later in 2004 the Seattle Mariners signed him from the free agent list. For a few years he was one of the best players on the Mariners they even made an ad about how good his defense was. I am probably least excited about this singing because I loved Mike Lowell at third, but I am still glad the Sox signed him.
