What a blockbuster!

 

Rumor has it that Lester and the Sawx already have a 2015 deal in place, but they wanted to rent him out for prospects. If that's true they're the best front office in baseball.

Yup, its a done deal.  Now they just flipped John Lackey to STL for Allen Craig and Joe Kelly.

 

Jesus the Boston front office is the best in baseball.

I meant Lester coming back to Boston in 2015 "handshake" agreement.

So Oakland traded Cespedes for Craig and Kelly? Not sure if I would have done that.

Brewers going to do anything?  Seems they put all their effort into the Price bucket...which I think Price stays.

Oakland Got Lester for Cespedes

 

ST. Louis Got Lackey for Craig and Kelly

 

Boston has traded away most of its Pitching Staff from the start of the year.

Plus StL got Masterson.  Brewers and Pirates better be watching out.

Not as big a deal but Brewers just stole Parra from the DBacks... thats a GREAT defensive outfield.  Big help to their SPs

I just don't see this as happening.  Supposedly, the Red Sox only offered Lester a 4 year $70 million deal at the beginning of the season.  Why lowball him then if you have a handshake deal to return?  Lester will likely get a 5 year $150 million + contract in free agency.

I've seen  a lot of baseball fire sales around the trade deadline but I can't recall any team that traded away as much and as quickly as the Red Sox:

 

Jake Peavy

Felix Doubrant

John Lester

John Lackey

Johnny Gomes

Andrew Miller

Stephen Drew

What about Cespedes fantasy value?  Will he be better or more consistent in Boston?  :emo-coffee:

And no David Price went to the Tigers.....

Even if they don't they can throw a boat load of money at Max or trade one of their 900 top prospects for one or two SPs.

 

If I'm wrong on Lester they were losing him regardless... Im shocked Oakland gave up their clean up hitter for a 2 month rental.

Is it just me, or did Tampa get next to nothing for David Price?

Seems like it.  Franklin was a good prospect and Willy Adames is supposed to be good, but hes an A-Ball guy so who knows.  Smyly is nothing special from what Ive seen.
