    Per MLB Trade Rumors...

    4:52pm: Boston would send some cash to Los Angeles if the sides complete a deal Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reports. Morosi confirms that the sides are close to a trade (Twitter links).
    4:34pm: The Red Sox and Dodgers are closing in on a trade that would send Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to Los Angeles, Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reports (on Twitter). Hurdles remain, but the sides continue working toward a deal.

    That is a lot of salary for the Dodgers to absorb even if the Sox send some cash.

    "Loney and Gonzalez were scratched from Friday's games" Sure sounds like these two are packing their bags.

    Crawford and Beckett have to waive their no trade clauses, which many have reported is not going to be an issue, and MLB has to sign off on the deal.

    According to Yahoo the deal is for Allen Webster, Rubby de la Rosa, James Loney, Ivan DeJesus, and Jimmy Sands. Doesn't look to me like a great deal for the Sox, but admittedly, they are trying to do addition by subtraction at this point.

    It is full blown case of dumping bad contracts and re-starting and getting some prospects back to do that. Loney is a filler. Webster is a top shelf prospect...the others not bad guys but not high end. But overall a good deal if they can re-spend smartly. Felix Hernandez (after 2014)? Josh Hamilton (of course his 'issues' may not work in Boston)...?

    SATURDAY, 7:52am: The deal is "pretty much done," reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that both Beckett and Crawford have agreed to waive their no-trade clauses while Rosenthal adds that both clubs have signed off on the medicals.

    You have to be brain dead to think this isn't a good deal for Boston.

    Magic appears to be as bad an owner as he is an analyst. And for that, I thank him!

    De La Rosa is supposed to be awesome. I have never seen him and he did just come back from an injury I think.

    Meanwhile, I just saw that Michael Pineda was arrested for DUI last Monday. Oy!!

    Some speculation in the Boston press that Lester and Ellsbury may be next.

    Ellsbury, maybe. Lester is not on the market.

    According to Sean McAdam thinks Ellsbury will be moved in the winter.

    The problem with Jacoby is not that the Sox don't want him. With Boros as his agent there will be a bidding war after next year. If a bidding war ensues it is likely that he will go somewhere else and the Sox will end up with at best a draft choice. If they can package him up with someone and get back a Felix Hernandez or similar I would be very happy and you would still be a fan.

    Doesn't sound like a great deal for the Sox? Are you nuts or in denial?
    The Dodgers are taking 260 of the 270 mil off the books AND they're giving up two pretty good pitching prospects? If they just took the contracts that would be a huge plus. The fact that Ben got them to throw in De La Rosa and Webster (who the Dodgers refused to send to Chicago for Dempster) is pretty damn impressive.

    De La Rosa coming off TJ surgery, but just came back to the majors this week. Had decent numbers last year with LA dodgers as a SP at the age of 22. He's back now throwing 96/97 already.
    Webster is being compared to a Derek Lowe type, 1 HR allowed this year in AA in 122 IP. Has control issues but strikes out 8.9/9 INN. Another kid, 22 years old.
    He'll be in the top 5 prospect list probably going into the offseason. DeLaRosa would be as well, but he may be considered a major leaguer now, not sure.
    Regardless, huge, franchise changing move. Best day for Sox since 2007 quite frankly.

    Really? Was Gonzalez on the market?

    Have to agree. Bad deal by the Dodgers. Beckett and Crawford are not worth what they are being paid and Gonzales has peaked.
