  Daily Links:     ESPN Boston Lester is two-faced no more. He showed up and pitched like Lester.   WEEI Here is a basic outline of what the Sox need at the deadline although I have to disagree with needing a shortstop/third baseman since Middlebrooks should be set by September and if Jose Iglesias could just hit .250 and hustle well, then that would be great. More on the Sox needs to get righties out. A lot of baseball minds might not agree but if the Sox could swap Thornton with Oakland for a Pat Neshek that could help solve the problem and would help both teams. In addition, I would want another reliever if they did that from a small market team like Luke Gre...

Next Day: Evaluating The Peavy-Iglesias Trade

Now that The Nation has had a few hours to sleep on it, we can now begin evaluating the trade pulled off by Red Sox GM Ben Cherington last night. Reportedly, the third team in (Detroit) was a late entry into the process and allowed Boston to take less of hit than they otherwise would have in a straight two-way deal with the White Sox. In any event, the Carmine Hose lost: SS Jose...

Jose Iglesias deal a blunder for Detroit Tigers

I know that Jhuicing Jhonny Peralta is most likely gone for 50 games and the Detroit Tigers needed a replacement. I know that Jose Iglesias’ .330 batting average seems to make this trade a steal since the Tigers didn’t have to give up anyone currently on the 25-man roster. And I know that this season is a World-Series-or-bust year. Owner Mike Ilitch may not see another. But what...

Red Sox get Peavy in 3-team deal

The Boston Red Sox acquired Jake Peavy from the Chicago White Sox in a three-team deal on Tuesday night that also sent shortstop Jose Iglesias to the Detroit Tigers. The slick-fielding Iglesias provides a nice insurance policy for AL Central-leading Detroit in case Jhonny Peralta is suspended as part of baseball's Biogenesis drug investigation. Peavy is 8-4 with a 4.28 ERA...

Tigers deal Avisail Garcia for Jose Iglesias as part of a three team blockbuster

A busy sports day in Detroit just got a busier as fans learned a valuable lesson of NEVER trusting what a general manager has to say. Hours after Dave Dombrowski made it look as though Detroit wasn’t on the verge of any blockbuster deals or addressing an impending short stop dilemma, the Tigers did a total 180. According to Ken Rosenthal of, the Tigers sent outfielder...
