Red Sox acquired outfielder Jay Payton, infielder Ramon Vazquez, RHP David Pauley and $2.65 million from the Padres for outfielder Dave Roberts.
Roberts wanted to be a regular again, and the Red Sox weren't going to stand in his way. As a right-handed hitter, Payton is probably a better fit as the team's fourth outfielder. He can start in place of Trot Nixon against lefties and back up Johnny Damon in center. The cash included should even up the difference in salary between Payton and Roberts. Dec. 20 - 10:23 pm et

Afterwards, Jeter said something to the effect of: "I don't know how you sit on the bench all night, cold, and come in and steal a base. Good job." (That's classy.)
Apparently in the seventh, Roberts went into the film room and studied Rivera's move, in preparation. Thanks.
