On An Otherwise Slow Saturday…

Red Sox make 262 million dollar trade with Dodgers

The Red Sox have announced a 262.5 million dollar trade with the LA Dodgers that will unload, Crawford, Gonzales, Beckett and Punto.

the Red Sox will send Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, Nick Punto and the combined $262.5 million remaining on their contracts to Los Angeles for top pitching prospects Allen Webster and Rubby De La Rosa, marginal hitting prospects Jerry Sands and Ivan DeJesus, and first baseman James Loney.

I can’t say if it will make the Red Sox worth watching next year, but how could it be worse than this year…and it frees up the payroll a bit for developing talent and a fresh start.

Or maybe not.
