    The Dodgers were awarded the waiver claim on Adrian Gonzalez, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reports (on Twitter). The Dodgers and Red Sox can now discuss a possible trade.

    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.

    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 )

    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.

    Now Gonzalez has been scratched from the Boston lineup

    EDIT:
    Alex Speier Red Sox Beat Writer, WEEI.com
    Punto and Gonzalez were both summoned into clubhouse from dugout

    That was my first thought -- Dave Revering & $400,000 for Vida if my memory still works
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    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
