    I hope Cherries isn't going to screw this up, however it comes down.

    Ohhh so it's up to the Red Sox which they wanna do? I guess they decided to do the Crawford one cause Nick Punto got summoned as well!

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: BLOCKBUSTER BLOCKBUSTER BLOCKBUSTER!!! HOLY SMOKES!!!! : Hes not a guy I wana keep around for his money. He is a soft excuse makeing baby he is exactly the type of guy we don't need on this team. He was won nothing in his career and his mentality is that of a loser. He doesn't want to be in boston and I think many fans feel the same way adios adrian!

    Yeah, i hear that.  I know many feel that way.  I just think that view of Adrian is an overblown hysterical one fueled by press eager to squeeze the Boston nightmare dry of drama.  Adrian has been good in Boston, even with a down year this year.  And every notion of his attitude problem is so trumped up and just innuendo.

    It's going to come down to the money included.

    Gomez stays in Boston, because the Sox will need a temprary 1st Baseman.
    That's why Tazawa was sent down.

    I am told trade is not yet official, even as players are scratched. Probably medicals, etc. have to be reviewed

    Gonzalez scratched. So something is going down soon

    Gordon Edes@GordonEdes

    To repeat: trade would send Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto to LA

    This maybe one of the craziest trades I've ever seen in Baseball.

    There is no way this trade does not set the Sox further back than they were before the trade.

    Honestly, do you really care?  Just dumping Beckett & Crawford make it worth the deal.

    We take the money & start rebuilding. 

    We still need to dump Lackey!  Now we can afford to do so!!!

    LACKEY MUST GO!

    All this is to undo the horrible contracts that Epstein perpetrated upon the franchise. He was absolutely one of the worst GMs in our history after 07. Ruined it.

    It will put them 260 million ahead of what they were this morning, and get rid of people who don't want to be here.
    Great benchmark trade!

    Gordon Edes@GordonEdes

    That's Rubby de la Rosa--pronounced Ruby. Legitimate top rotation guy, had Tommy John last year, threw 97 last week

    Christopher Treanor@ChristopTreanor

    This is Sox version of Michael Corleone. All scores are settled.

    Before the team can move forward they had to do something like this. It does set us back. But it had to be dismantled first.

    This team will be ready to contend in 2015. How does not trading Beckett, Crawford, and Gonzalez push that year out any further? Beckett would be a FA by the time this team is going to be good again after this trade.

    The contracts of Gonzalez and Crawford extend past 2015. That money could be used to fortify the pitching. That has to take priority over everything IMO.

    Source confirms Edes report that Sox would get De La Rosa, De Jesus, Sands, Loney, prospect in a deal. Still in medical review phase.
    Pete Abraham@PeteAbe

    would reportedly get: 1B James Loney, OF/1B Jerry Sands (AAA), RHP Rubby De La Rosa (AAA), INF Ivan DeJesus (AAA) and a prospect

    I think it is going be very tough to be make up for two holes in the lineup especially losing the bat of Gonzalez. This is going to be hard to fix long term.

    I think they will definitely have to retain the bats of Ortiz and Ross after this.

    Good pitching is hard to come by. If Delarosa is as good as he is being described by Edes ("top of the rotation guy") then its worth it. Moon posted something a while ago about the difference between a hitter whose OPS is .812 (Gonzo this year) and one who is, say, .782. Is only .030. If we get a 1b with some speed and that OPS, isn't that a good deal?

    Imagine the people saying 'why isn't Gonzo in the lineup tonight?' and the look on their face when they get the answer 'um, traded'.

    Great that they dump all that salary, but there's really no one that attractive in the '13 free agent pool.  Nobody young anyways.

    You could go out and sign Shane Victorino  as either Crawford's replacement of Ellsbury's replacement.
    Rock solid player, who's battle tested.
    You could also sign Youlilis for next year, since Valentine and Beckett will be gone, to play 1st base.
    Plenty of options. believe me.
