If you’re buying Hosmer, you’re buying the intangibles. That seems to be part of Boras’ sales pitch. Hosmer was viewed as a clubhouse leader in Kansas City, although apparently he was a better leader in 2014 and 2015, when the team had better pitching. Still, he has charisma, and that’s worth a little something, and maybe a team like the Red Sox — speaking of the team with the home park perfect for Hosmer — could use somebody like Hosmer. The Red Sox lacked a strong clubhouse guy last season.
