This has to be the most ridiculous move pulled off in baseball history, right? The biggest in season blockbuster in history. I mean I blogged it this afternoon and truly thought there was zero chance that proposed move could get done. ZERO. Fucking Ben Cherrington though! You know how great a move this is? I don’t know a lick of what we got back. I don’t care what we got back. For all I, we could get nothing back. Loney is steadily decent but i really dont care al all. That’s how happy I am to have all those fucks out of my life.
I still stand by what I said about Gonzalez earlier. If it was just him I wouldn’t be happy about it. But obviously we couldn’t dump Beckett and Crawford without at least one able body attached to the deal. They’ll have a hard time replacing his bat, definitely. But it’s absolutely worth losing him to get rid of the cancerous tumor that was Beckett and the ridiculous contract attached to Crawford. Adios amigos! Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!
PS – seriously who the hell approved this in LA? I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them.
