Che-Hsuan Lin Could Give Red Sox Nation Its Own ‘Linsanity’ as Fourth Outfielder for Boston

Jeremy Lin has taken the NBA by storm, but could Red Sox Nation be in store for some "Linsanity" of its own?

Outfielder Che-Hsuan Lin, who signed with the Red Sox as an international free agent in 2007, has worked his way through the Red Sox system, impressing a number of scouts along the way. Lin was promoted to Triple-A in 2011, and was eventually added to Boston's 40-man roster in November in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

NESN's Peter Gammons said that Lin is a great defensive center fielder, who could end up fitting in as a fourth or fifth outfielder.

Gammons also weighed in on Oakland's signing of Manny Ramirez, and discussed what Roy Oswalt's future may hold.
