Beckett



I just said that it would be a dream scenario for the Dodgers to take Josh Beckett alongside Adrian Gonzalez in any sort of trade. 

Well, Sean McAdam just confirmed that the dream could become a reality. Beckett has also been claimed by the Dodgers off of the waiver wire.

Disgruntled Sox fans can already be heard celebrating but before we continue this fiesta, let's remember that Beckett's 10-5 rights are still in effect and could effectively kill all of this discussion. But why Beckett would put this in effect considering all the hatred & drama that is thrown is way is beyond me. He'll be in the midst of a division hunt, where there is less pressure and benefit those massive fields in the NL West. 

One big thing to look out for is how much money the Dodgers would assume in a trade. If the Sox could manage to get them to take a majority of the salary, this trade suddenly becomes even more tempting for the front office to pull the trigger. 

If this trade does go through, it becomes the biggest trade to happen in the Waiver Trade Deadline and would very well make teams like the San Francisco Giants scream at Bud Selig and MLB that this shouldn't be able to happen. We'll see what happens...
