    This is great because we know Oakland has no chance in resigning him and we get a power hitting outfielder in return.


    EDIT:  Second thought, I want to wait and see what the complete deal is first, I'm hoping we got back something else in return but we shall see.

    There is your righty OF bat. Until they don't I am hoping they resign Lester this off season.

    Very un Beane like.  I think he knows this could backfire on him but he wants to go for it.

    Did not see this coming...assuming Lester had to go in any case, I like this a lot.

    I can live with this ... IF Lester has to go - and apparently he does.

    I like this a heck of a lot better than Lester for prospects - who may or may not work out.  

    Any owners who sign previously suspended PED abusers to a big $$ contract are as guilty of perpetuating the PED problem as are the players.

    And I have never posted here under any other names.

    Sox are also getting a competitive balance pick. 

    Which is equivalent to a supplemental first round pick.

    There's no way Oakland will resign him. Hopefully he comes back to Boston in offseason. Great move by cherington

    Hoe-lee SCHNIEKIES!  Did NOT see that coming.  Had young pitching in my mind as the return, but this fills a HUGE need.  And with a chance (maybe slim) that we still have Lester Opening Day 2015.  Wow.

    This is good?  Another .250 hitter?  With some power?  and no pitching.   

    Our rotation next year - assuming Lackey is next 

    1. Buchholtz

    2. De La Rosa

    3. Webster

    I like Cespedes and he's better than prospects, but he's later 20's and has probably reached his ceiling production-wise.  Great news about the draft pick.

    Just a thought...

    This has to really suck for Cespedes.  He moves from the contending A's who have a real chance at a WS Championship... to ... Boston.. who may play .400 ball the rest of the way.  Ugh.

    Oakland is a hard place for a right handed hitter to hit power over there!!  Better off to come to fenway park, and he ll hit over 30 homeruns a year!!
