I'm joined by Eric Wilbur and host Daigo Fujiwara, and I'm going to reiterate one point here that was made in the podcast: Yes, I agree with the oft-repeated sentiment that sending Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, and special guest star Nick Punto to the Dodgers sounds like something a sports-radio caller would cook up. But the difference is that trade-happy sports radio callers would suggest getting Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, and Hanley Ramirez in return.
Also, that's Rubby De La Rosa in the picture. Figure it's a good idea to learn what some of these new Sox prospects actually look like.
