Earlier this afternoon, the Boston Red Sox traded lefty reliever Franklin Morales and minor league pitcher Chris Martin for 29-year old infielder Jonathan Herrera.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Morales allowed two runs on four hits in five innings, while fanning nine and walking no one. Of the two runs allowed by Morales, the second could have been prevented had Dustin Pedroia and Darnell McDonald...
