All they had to do was give up an overacheiving 1B prospect coming off a major wrist surgery? Brilliant. Great move. Everyone knew BOS had to move DM, I guess his price really did get deflated because of the ball scandal.

On a side note - I was playing Yahoo pool the other day and got to talkin with this chick I was playin against. She was saying she was in the air and travels all the time. Of course that leads to "what do you do" - and her response: Oh, I work for the Boston Red Sox. 8-o Of course Im skeptical - but I ask what she does for them... Turns out she's a player liason. Im still skeptical of course, but after a little baseball chat she obviously knows what she's talking about. Now, she could have gotten a lot of the stuff we discussed by reading the paper, but then she throws out - Doug M will be traded within 24 hours. 8-o 8-o

This was yesterday.

Im a lot less skeptical. She actually added me to her friends file on Yahoo. Who in the hell did I just meet online?


Haha, great story. What exactly does a players liason do? Any ideas?

Does anyone else think that this is a tremendous move for the Sox? They get rid of Minky who they do not need at all. Plus they get a prospect. Plus cash. Added bonus: they can crucify Minky now with the WS ball issue.

they dont get cash.

the cash in the article was the cash to pick up DM's contract so they could trade him. It was as if the Mets picked up his extention - but the Sox had to be the ones to pay it.

This was DM for a deep prospect. Considering they would have taken a bag of peanuts for him due to their relationship, I say they got exactly that.

i really dont get the deal of overpaying
people say
oh the mets overpaid for someone
so what? does it decrease the value of the player? if they could afford pay beltran 25mil a year for all i care
hes still the same player
so what if they overpay...overpaying doesnt make it a bad deal

It means you have less to spend on other players.... but with the cable deal I guess they aren't worrying about cash.

You realize you still have a budget, although it's higher than most teams? If cash wasn't an issue you'd have Carlos Delgado as your 1B and Maggs as your RF.
