The Red Sox are about to make a blockbuster trade to the LA Dodgers that will punctuate a disappointing season. The Red Sox put the majority of their team on waivers and the Dodgers swooped in and took advantage of what is turning into a fire sale for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are sending Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto to the Dodgers for a promising minor league pitcher named Rubby De La Rosa. De La Rosa was 4-5 with a 3.71 ERA for the Dodgers last season. There are still some other pieces to be included like James Loney, but this is basically a fire sale for the Red Sox.
Reports on the internet suggested that the Red Sox were putting everyone on the waiver wire to include Jon Lester and Jacoby Ellsbury.
Now it seems like those may be the only two players that the Red Sox are keeping. One of the major components was getting Adrian Gonzalez, and once the Dodgers claimed Josh Beckett it was basically a done deal.
