    Red Sox and Cubs have agreement in place that sends Felix Doubront to Chicago, source says.

    Theo compiling players he drafted.  I would be interested to see what they got for him.  He seemed to have promise but apparently he has a pish poor attitude.

    Maybe a change of scenery will help him...who knows. I'd had my fill of him after the past week, but if he turns into a good starter in the NL, hopefully everyone will remember that most people wanted him gone for a bag of balls and not start with the "HORRIBLE TRADE, FIRE BEN" threads.

    Per @jonmorosi and @JonHeymanCBS the #RedSox have sent Doubront to the Cubs for a PTBNL.

    If the Sox got Mike Olt back, he's 26, he hit .139 in 187 at bats and struck out 84 times (45%).

    Garbage.

    Wow, a PTBNL.  I never guessed his stock was that low.  A few years ago he looked like a long-time fixture as a 4th or 5th starter. But after the other night his body language was anything but positive.

    That would probably be Walt Later. He is 36 yrs old SS in the Cubs A league.

    Doubront is gone. My day is made. Never disliked a player more than that slug.

    I wouldn't quite go that far but this is addition by subtraction.

    Two times in three years (2011, 2013) he showed up in camp out of shape. He never was as good in his early appearances as some tried to pain him. He had an excellent 20-game stretch last year -- something like that -- that showed his talent, and I thought he could be ready for a true break through year. But he whined last year when he went to the bullpen last year and has been a disaster this year.

    Time for him to move on.

    I cannot believe Ben could not get anything for him.  At least Ben should have made Theo take Drew as a throw in.

    I think the NL and the no pressure Cubbies will be very friendly to Doub.  If not you have to assume he won't make it anywhere.

    Why not Buchholz while we're at it!

    Sometimes the 40 man roster spot is what is really valuable.

    Can't say I am sorry to see him go. Toucher & Rich was talking about him possibly going to the Cubs this morning.

    Re: Doubrant to Cubs

    I'm surprised we traded Doubie, but I'm glad we don't have to keep being continuously disappointed watching all that talent being wasted by constant nibbling the corners and poor attitude & physical shape.

    Let the flood gates open.

    Trade anyone and everyone not part of our 2015 or beyond.
