Red Sox Close To Blockbuster Mega Deal With LA Dodgers


The deal is being held up because the Red Sox have not got permission from Josh Beckett, who has 10 and 5 rights, or Carl Crawford, who has a partial no trade clause. 

The "top prospect" looks like it is going to be Allen Webster from the Dodgers 

The deal would include the Dodgers sending Rubby De La Rosa (as a PTBNL since he did not clear waivers), James Loney, Jerry Sands, Ivan DeJesus, and another top prospect to the Red Sox

MLB rules stipulate that the only way Carl Crawford can be traded, since he is on the DL, is as a Player To Be Named Later. 

Nick Punto is now attending a clubhouse meeting with Adrian Gonzalez

Adrian Gonzalez has been scratched from tonight's start for Boston

James Loney has been scratched from his start tonight in Los Angeles

Adrian Gonzalez does NOT have the Dodgers listed on his No Trade List.

The Dodgers are talking of including Rubby De La Rosa, Jerry Sands Allen Webster, and Zach Lee in some sort of combination. I do not see all of them going but you never know. 

The Red Sox are close to agreeing  to trade SP Josh Beckett, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, INF Nick Punto, and LF Carl Crawford to the Dodgers after being awarded waiver claims on them. The Red Sox have agreed to send cash to the Dodgers and the Dodgers will be sending prospects to Boston.

The Dodgers new website name is and we are currently in a legal battle for the domain #sarcasm.


  1. I love it when the Red Sox crash and burn. These are the Red Sox of youth. Can all say Bernie Carbo. I love NY!

    1. You can look at it that way... or this way.

      This gives them a shit ton of money to steal away Kuroda, Swisher, etc etc etc in free agency...

  2. So the Sox are only paying $12 million of the $270 million left on those contracts. Yikes. That's a lot of money they'll have freed up to spend elsewhere. Although they spent pretty bad before, so that could happen again. But did they learn from those mistakes? Could be.

    BTW, I don't think they steal anybody away from the Yankees. If NY wants to bring Swisher or Kuroda back, then they will be back. Because on top of liking the Yankees, they will get paid by the team too.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
