Shuffle Up and Deal

A cavalcade of transactions:

  • Traded Ramon Vazquez for Alex Cora with Cleveland, who is slightly more expensive and productive ($700,000 and .234 OBP versus $1.3M and .250 OBP).
  • Designated Jay Payton for assignment.
  • Activated Adam Stern from the 60-day disabled list, who would have to go back to Atlanta if he wasn’t promoted by July 12.
  • Sent Lenny DiNardo back down to Pawtucket; now he might miss Bronson Arroyo’s CD release party!

And to top it off, Keith Foulke had his knee surgery. It’s safe to say that Theo Epstein did more before 9 AM today than I did all week.

With Damon banged up, tonight’s lineup is more than a little makeshift. We all wait with heavy anticipation for the word on what the Red Sox will get for Jay Payton.


According to Gammo and Remy, Payton I guess mouthed off to Tito or something and Tito was like "Fuck this" and such...which lead to the DFA...but then again I was at work the whole entire time when this went on....
