Hope we get the chance....but facing them in the playoffs will be significantly different than when we faced them without Kemp, Ethier and missed Kershaw.

I believe Jerry Hairston Jr was their top choice to bat cleanup then.

ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes tweeted this...

Blockbuster: red Sox, Dodgers working on deal that would send AGon, Crawford, Beckett and Punto to LA. Hurdles remain, but closing in

Off-topic, but since you mentioned his name, I though I'd just add how much I totally love Jerry Hairston Jr. (though not cleaning up, obviously - totally get your point :laugh:)

How is this good for baseball if the Dodgers become the new Yankees of the NL???? And to think the Reds were not allowed to get Vida Blue becuae Kuhn didnt want a dynasty in Cincinnati.. Goodness!!


Selig should shoot this deal down

Something tells me it's more likely they become the Marlins of the west, and Selig might shoot it down for that reason. It all depends on the TV deal.

My god, that is a crazy trade, especially in late August. This would have to put the Dodgers as the NL favorites, right? Especially with Strasburg out of the playoffs.

My goodness. Dodgers would get the better players, but IMO those contracts are just terrible. I would hate to have those contracts.

Also James Loney apparently just got scratched from the Dodgers lineup.

That was my first thought -- Dave Revering & $400,000 for Vida if my memory still works

More from Gordon Edes

To repeat: trade would send Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto to LA. Red Sox would get RHP Rubby de la Rosa, as PTBNL since he did not clear waivers. Also, 1b James Loney, OF Sands, IF DeJesus, top prospect

Anybody know anything about the quality of the prospects?

I have a hard time believing that Carl Crawford was a problem in Boston.

I don't see why the Dodgers would want the headache of these contracts and personalities.

Allan Webster is very good. When the Lookouts came to Pensacola, he was the one that featured three average-to-plus pitches while Zach Lee was a mess.

James Loney career will probably have a shelf life of one month in the AL unless the Red Sox are happy with the defense. I read that Mattingly protected him a lot in LA.

Could be a little urgency to compete with the Angels? What greater FU to the Angels than to make it to the World Series after they spent so much on Wilson and Pujols?

I think they want LA back, plus they see a golden opportunity to win this year. There's just no clear-cut great team out there. They seem to be going for it, even if it really screws them long-term. Talk now is that there's no way Kershaw comes back.

Magic Johnson and company have made it clear that they want to win and they want to win now. Can't wait til the Dodgers head in to Great American next month. That's going to be a showdown right around playoff time; I'm sure they're expecting record capacities.
