Red Sox and Dodgers Working on Blockbuster Trade
The Dodgers and Red Sox are hard at work on a blockbuster deal involving up to 8 players. According to multiple sources including ESPNBoston, the Dodgers would receive starting pitcher Josh Beckett, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, outfielder Carl Crawford, and utility player Nick Punto in exchange for Rubby De La Rosa, James Loney, Ivan De Jesus and Jerry Sands. In a move that may show the validity of the rumors, De La Rosa was optioned to Triple-A early this afternoon.
Dodger ownership is taking no prisoners and showing they are willing to spend big money in absorbing some of these contracts. We'll see if the trade gets completed. What do you guys think of this possible trade?
True to the Blue!
