Blockbuster: red Sox, Dodgers working on deal that would send AGon, Crawford, Beckett and Punto to LA. Hurdles remain, but closing in— Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes) August 24, 2012
Sweet Tweetsus! I have to admit getting swept by the Giants made me think beyond this season and when Yasiel Puig would be able to join Kemp & Ethier, but I'm glad the Guggenheim boys aren't thinking this way.
Carl Crawford comes with an albatross of a $100 million-plus contract, but you would hope he would find Dodger Stadium a lot more to his liking than Fenway.
Are we Adrian Gonzalez fans? Yes we are. But the hidden gem here could be Josh Beckett. Freed from the bullshit of the Boston market — as well as having to be a top-of-the-rotation guy — he could unburden himself in L.A. as well.
Will he get a chance to? Here's hoping we find out.
