So the Jays and Red Sox swapped SS's.

Marco Scutaro signed a deal with Boston last night.

Hey Matt - are you feeling OK?

that's the 1st time I've seen you post about the Sox without throwing in a few 4 letter words or mentioning how much you hate the Sox and Boston.

Granderson To Yanks, Edwin Jackson To D'Backs, Scherzer To Tigers

Quote
The Yankees receive center fielder Curtis Granderson, who turns 29 in March.  Granderson is owed $5.5MM in 2010, $8.25MM in '11, and $10MM in '12, with a $13MM club option/$2MM buyout for '13.  That's $25.75MM guaranteed over the next three years.  Melky Cabrera could now be expendable for the Yankees, and the Cubs are one possible suitor.

The Diamondbacks receive a pair of starting pitchers: Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy. Jackson, 26, is under team control for '10 and '11 and is owed an arbitration raise on this year's $2.2MM salary.  Kennedy, 25 this month, missed most of the '09 season due to surgery to remove an aneurysm near his shoulder.  As far as I can tell he is under team control for another six seasons.  This is the second year in a row Jackson has been traded at the Winter Meetings.

The Tigers receive four players: starter Max Scherzer, relievers Daniel Schlereth and Phil Coke, and center fielder Austin Jackson.  The Tigers get five years of Scherzer, six of Schlereth, five of Coke, and six of Jackson, potentially 22 years of control in total.  Scherzer, 25, and Jackson, 23 in February, are probably considered the prizes of the haul.


Nice haul all the way around...

This isn't exactly going to change the landscape in the AL East. I'm posting it because it's...just...awesome.

The Red Sox claimed Ramon Ramirez (TB) off waivers. What the...  :? I didn't know he left?

He didn't. He's still on the roster. Now they just have two Ramon Ramirezes.  :lol:

Orioles acquired RHP Kevin Millwood and cash from the Rangers for RHP Chris Ray and a player to be named later.

Bob Elliott of The Toronto Sun reports that the Blue Jays have signed speedy outfielder Joey Gathright.

The 28-year-old Gathright is a career .263/.327/.303 hitter in the big leagues, and has spent the better part of his baseball life bouncing between Triple-A and the Majors. Gathright just needs to hook on with the Yankees one of these years to complete the AL East quintuple crown.

It appears the Red Sox no longer have to worry about Facing John Lackey in the playoffs.

Lackey's Fenway numbers are garbage, I'm surprised he took That deal. It fucks over the Jays compensation pick for Scutaro....

So Halladay to Phillies, Lee to M's and the Jays get a boatload of prospects? I'm ok with that - especially if Cole Hamels is in the package.

It's worth bearing in mind that, to date, Lackey's numbers at Fenway have only come against one team. And a team that makes a living scoring runs there. He might just do a little better wearing the home uni.

He's not, but your favorite player, Kyle Drabek, is.

Yeah it looks like the Jays are getting Kyle Drabeck, Micheal Taylor and a catching prospect - the flipping Taylor to the A's for Brett Wallace.
