Red Sox/Dodgers Mega-Trade Nearly Complete
Ever since yesterday evening, the Red Sox and the Dodgers have been working toward a trade. Not just any trade, but a trade that would send 1B Adrian Gonzalez, OF Carl Crawford, RHP Josh Beckett and SS Nick Punto to the Dodgers in exchange for 1B James Loney and several prospects. At least one of the prospects that the Red Sox will obtain will be a top prospect. In order for the trade to go through, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett had to OK a trade due to their no-trade clauses. Surprisingly, both have Ok'ed the trade and the final details are being worked out.
