The big trade!

What a day.

Jon Morosi is reporting the following -

To L.A. - Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punt.

This is a blockbuster trade!

Nothing official just yet.

Adrian Gonzalez was scratched from the starting lineup in Boston.

James Loney was also scratched from the Dodgers lineup.

I'm not happy that Rubby De La Rosa is part of this package.

True Blue L.A. broke down the contracts. {linked here}
  • Adrian Gonzalez (age 30) has six years, $127 million left on his contract
  • Carl Crawford (age 31) has five years, $102.5 million left
  • Josh Beckett (age 32) has two years, $31.5 million remaining
  • Nick Punto (age 34) has $1.5 million due in 2013
And remember that Crawford is out for the year. (Tommy John surgery)

I don't know if I like this trade. I hate the amount of money that is owed to these guys. Gonzalez might start to decline.

Crawford? Let's hope he plays like when he was in Tampa.

Not that worried about Beckett. Might pitch better in the N.L.

I'll stick around tonight to see if this goes through. Stay tuned.

Time to finally get rid of BA Loney.
