Keeping the East at Bay

He’s gone now. Instead of the Marlins, it was the Dodgers who were the white knights of the deal.

The Red Sox receive Jason Bay as previously stated and will pay the remainder of Ramirez’s salary. Manny Ramirez will play in Chavez Ravine, and the Pirates acquire:

  • From the Dodgers:
  • From the Red Sox:
    • Craig Hansen, 2005 first round pick that needs to be salvaged
    • Brandon Moss, outfielder that had no spot in Boston’s current lineup

The Marlins got too greedy and asked for the Red Sox to add more money and three prospects to send to the Bucs to the deal while they would surrender Jeremy Hermida and only one minor leaguer.

I’m not sure what to think of the entire thing yet except that Scott Boras is a scourge on the sport of baseball.
