Boston Red Sox
Los Angeles Dodgers
Everyone that follows major league baseball woke up this morning and felt it. The rumbling through the baseball world as Red Sox GM Ben Cherrington executed quite possibly the biggest trade of a generation. The Red Sox sent Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto to the Dodgers in exchange for James Loney and three other prospects. Also, the Dodgers will assume over 250 million dollars in future salary considerations. The move is so big, with so many moving parts that it genuinely is hard to figure out its impact at this point. What is clear is this move will have massive reprecussions for years o come.
The Red Sox essentially traded away three of the worst contracts in baseball. The Sox were going nowhere fast with these players so the powers in Boston blew it up. So where does it leave them? James Loney will come over from the Dodgers and be the new starting first baseman for the Sox. Loney has been a disappointment as a prospect since his first full season in...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Red Sox-Dodgers deal to put all other deals to shame may not be completely wrapped up yet, but Red Sox chairman Tom Werner is already giving it an A-plus. Werner told Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com on Saturday morning that "hopefully this deal will go through today," with the Red Sox seeing nothing but positives. "If it falls into place, the deal sheds us from tens...
With all the hullabaloo about who the Red Sox were sending out of town, and the salary the team was shedding in Saturday's trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, it's been largely overlooked that the Red Sox gained a major league regular first baseman in James Loney. At one time the left-handed hitting Loney was considered virtually untouchable by the Dodgers, looked at as one...
As rumors surfaced about a possible deal between the Red Sox and Dodgers on Friday evening, almost everyone knew who Boston would be sending away if a trade happened. Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett were both claimed off trade waivers, and reports soon arose that Carl Crawford and Nick Punto were also in the mix. Little was said about who the Dodgers would be sending back, but it...
This was a fantasitical week for a couple of celebrity relationships. In a stunning development for people who grew up a long time ago and stopped reading comic books, we found out that Superman is going to boom-boom-boom, lemme hear you say way oh! Wonder Woman’s bathing suit areas. While on most weeks, the enticing nature of a supergasm would take the cake, I’m going to give...
1 p.m.: We're coming up on game time here, and the Red Sox have sent a whole bunch of smiling faces down to field level to take photos with fans. James Loney is also on the premises and in Red Sox colors. First pitch is in just a half an hour. 11:30 a.m.: It's been a crazy few days for Red Sox fans, so I thought I'd get you caught up in case you missed any of the action...
Adrian Gonzalez wasted no time getting used to his new home with the Dodgers. He smashed a three-run homer in his first at-bat just hours after he and fellow former Red Sox teammates Josh Beckett and Nick Punto arrived in Los Angeles. On Saturday, Gonzalez's counterpart in the trade, former Dodgers first baseman James Loney, will get a chance to impress his new club. Red Sox...
It's being reported both Adrian Gonzalez and the Dodger's James Loney are being held out of their respective lineups tonight. That's certainly not a coincidence.
Expect reports of this deal being completed to be rolling in shortly.

BOSTON (AP) -- James Loney hit a tying single in his Boston debut and Jacoby Ellsbury drove in the go-ahead run as the revamped Red Sox bounced back from a nine-player trade and a 12-inning loss to beat the Kansas City Royals 8-6 on Sunday.
A day after he was the only major leaguer coming to Boston in a deal that sent Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and...
Adrian Gonzalez has been scratched from the Red Sox lineup on Friday night as the trade rumors continue to swirl around the team's first baseman. Gonzalez, along with Josh Beckett, was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier in the day, fueling speculation that a megadeal for the two -- along with Carl Crawford and Nick Punto, possibly -- could be in the works...
The Sox almost blew it again, but they held for an ugly win on this time to set up a chance for a series win.
The Sox jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after getting single runs in the 1st and 2nd, by way of a Ross single and Aviles double respectively. Doubront had a fairly easy time in until the 4th, when he was tagged for 4 runs. Doubront came out for a score-less 5th and that...
It was announced this morning that all the contract mumbo jumbo is done and the deal is done. The Sox are sending Gonzalez, Beckett, Punto and Crawford to the Dodgers and getting back James Loney and prospects Rubby De La Rosa, Jerry Sands, Allen Webster and Ivan de Jesus.
Additionally, it is reported that the Red Sox are only play 12 million dollars of the money which is owed...
