What is the story behind the Punto trade.. do you mean the giant salary dump to LA, or is there more to it than that.
Just seems that they have a bizzare plan.. Sign Gomes for LF. Sign Victorino, then trade one year of Ellsbury for an young near ace pitcher.. Asking for Latos is just plain ludicrous. Now granted, this is just rumors, maybe they didn't really ask for that much.
In the end, Ellsbury (if traded) is going to get less return than Span did. Same with Choo (I know the Indians are holding out for a lot).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
