However, the Red Sox outfield has hit 14 HRs this season. That is atrocious. They clearly needed a bat.

I like the trade. Lots of chatter bemoaning the fact we didn't get Skippy Dunderfuck from AAA Albuquerque or Tommy Stinkycunt from AA Altoona. Sometimes the prospects work out, sometimes they don't. How's Matt LaPorta doing? Given the desire to immediately contend again in '15, I'd rather get the proven hitter.

People are also saying we didn't get enough for Lester. You're not getting a king's ransom for a two month rental. You got a major league ready, power hitting outfielder with good numbers in a shitty hitter's park.

I'll be honest, part of me is in total fanboy mode, believing Lester will re-sign here after the season irregardless. Part of me thinks there was a wink-wink deal to trade him, get a bat, then get him back and start fresh in '15. Of course, there's no fucking way that's happening, but it soothes the sting of such a stupid move. You get Cespedes through next year, hitting in Fenway during a contract year, or you try to flip him to Miami for Stanton.

Now, if you'll excuse me...

It wouldn't surprise me at all if Lester came back. There's basically no way the A's can afford to sign him so he's at the very least going back on the market and is up for grabs, and he has always maintained that he wants to stay there.

It wouldn't surprise me either, but I think the damage has been done by the initial low ball offer, and the newfound philosophy by the Sox to not give 30 year old pitchers 6-8 year contracts. I think he'd have a hard time turning down 7/$144 from the Yankeedodgerangelphillies.

I go away for a few weeks and I miss out on awesome, non-homo, showing some real emotion Gregs Kite? Goddamnit!! Reading through the last 3 pages of this thread was the highlight of my day.

I have to say... I sort of like what the Sox did at the deadline, other than the fact that Clay "Gaping Vagina" Buchholz is still on the team. But I like Greg's ranting about it way more than I liked anything that actually happened.

He's really bad at hitting baseballs. I'm not sure what else there is to say.

The dilemma is that he's really, really good at catching and throwing them.

i am sorry, i was under the assumption that the hole in his swing would get smaller instead of growing to a size where he could crawl inside it and take a leisurely nap

Probably will end up with a national league team as a 4th outfielder at some point.

As much as I wanted him to succeed, I don't really want to see him play for the Red Sox again. Watching his at bats were depressing. Great defender, but he's had enough MLB at bats at this point to know it's probably not going to happen for him.

The best news the Red Sox can get right now is in terms of signings. Last night's loss was a major kick-in-the-pants, even though the season has been effectively over for a while. Koji giving up five with two outs and a three-run lead is tough to stomach. At least it wasn't against the Yankees.
