Gotta love the Red Sox/Yankee rumor mill where its assumed all smaller market teams are there just to feed them talent.
No kidding, just another reason why I was thrilled when the Brewers extended Sheets last year. I was so tired of Gammons and the east coast media writing him off as trade bait for Boston. Turns out, he loves it here. Part owner of the Milwaukee Admirals (IHL team), and he just seems to pop up all over the place now (he just sat in a did commentary during the Bucks/Bobcats game on TV tonight).
Anyway, sorry to get off track. If the trade goes through as the original poster laid it out, I think Cleveland wins. Crisp is a nice player, should fill Boston's hole. But I think Marte can be special.
