Dodgers Not Only Spending Money, They're Receiving Money

Adrian Gonzalez (and his friends Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto) may be the gift that keeps on giving: Boston will send us another $11.7M, to boot:

LOS ANGELES -- The blockbuster trade that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford from Boston to the Dodgers last August will wrap up with the Red Sox paying $11.7 million to Los Angeles over the next three years.

The Red Sox will make identical payments of $3.9 million in 2013, 2014 and 2015 as part of the cash component of the trade.

Boston also sent infielder Nick Punto to Los Angeles in the nine-player trade that was the biggest in Dodgers history.

Free* money? We'll take it!

(*) Look, I know it's not free, but it's still awesome.

Better than a kick in the junk.

Put it in the trough replacement fund.

Still not as good as kicking Shane Victorino in the junk, though.

Steve Sax said...

You can kick Victorino in the junk, just don't throw it at his head

Can someone kick Victorino in the junk for me too? Mahalo.

On a not-entirely-unrelated-note, why does the Hawaiian Punch mascot's hat look so much like antlers?

5-year-old me demands an explanation.

I am really hopeful for a good Carl Crawford and not a Vernon Wells Carl Crawford

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's good information, right there.

It still looks like antlers, though.
