Poll: Which Boston Red Sox Outfielder Is Most Likely To Be Traded?

The Boston Red Sox have a lot of rebuilding to do this offseason, and they’ll likely have to make at least one trade to get exactly what they need. But who will be the one to get sent away?

Tuesday afternoon news and notes

The World Series starts tonight. Looking at the rosters I just can’t help but think that the Giants are the better team. They have the best offense, by far. The Giants have seven bats that were above-average. The Royals have two. The two have similar rotations but the Royals have a big advantage in the bullpen. I will take the advantage of the offense over the advantage of the...

Yoenis Cespedes Drops $100k To Customize $500k Lambo (Photos)

Yoenis Cespedes doesn’t mind blowing money fast when it comes to his cars. The Red Sox slugger dropped $500,000 on a very slick looking black lamborghini and then an additional $100,000 just to wreck it up and customize it from scratch. Must be nice.

What’s not to like? Especially when you compare that production to the last three years of Mets left fielders? Sure, Yoenis Cespedes is an intriguing name, but like those that came before him – Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzales to name just two – it’s just more wishful thinking about something that has very little chance of happening.
