Take This Trade, As It Is Now, AND SHOVE IT!!!
And this just out from Eric Wilber of the Globe. IT MAKES SENSE. THANK YOU. See my post directly below for a comment on the Plains-Dealer original article........."Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that while there is concern over Mota's health, the Cleveland GM is willing to keep him if the Red Sox sweeten the deal. How kind. The not-so-Equal artificial sweetener in this scenario would be Red Sox righthander Manny Delcarmen.
So, if you're keeping score, that's Crisp, David Riske, and Josh Bard for Andy Marte, Mota, Kelly Shoppach, and Delcarmen. The Indians are awaiting the Red Sox' final, best offer today, according to Hoynes. I suggest then, Theo, you dial up Shapiro and tell him your final offer is that you propose he shoves it."
********Peter here again, and I couldn't have said it better myself. This just appeared on the Globe site.*******
