http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/extras/extra_bases/2010/02/red_sox_in_good.htmlHere is what the Red Sox have in the early rounds:
No. 20 (From the Braves, compensation for Billy Wagner)
Supplemental First Round
No. 36 (Compensation for Jason Bay)
No. 38 (Compensation for Billy Wagner)
No. 57 (From the Mets, compensation for Jason Bay)Props to Theo Epstein. He traded two low-level prospects (Chris Carter and Eddie Lora) to the Mets and in return got 15 appearances from Billy Wagner (during which he had an ERA+ of 237) and two of the first 57 picks in the draft.
That is robbery.
It's funny, I was just talking to one of my best friends who is a Mets fan and he brought up the Wagner deal, hahaha.
