Red Sox liked Carlos Santana's combination of on-base skills, pop and leadership qualities. They just didn't value the package as much as the Phillies, who can point to Santana as a winning player in future attempts to lure veterans as part of their rebuild. Santana isn't a true middle-of-the-order thumper, but Sox hopeful his signing helps spur movement in the markets for J.D. Martinez and Eric Hosmer.
