The last 2 games between the Phillies and Reds have had some seriously amazing defensive plays for both teams.

The Red Sox and Dodgers are closing in on a trade that would send Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to Los Angeles, Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reports (on Twitter). Hurdles remain, but the sides continue working toward a deal.

 :o

But then we'll be without PUNTO POWER!!!!

But seriously... do this deal.  I don't care what we get back.

Actually if it does go through Beckett will say no since he's got 10-5 rights just to F it all up.

Is Carl Crawford still alive or did he spend too much time with JD Drew?

Loney pulled from lineup for LA.  Punto & Gonzalez scratched from lineup and now in the clubhouse.

Somethings going down.

FIRE SALE IN BOSTON!

Um, espn is calling this a "block buster" trade that will "shake baseball to its knees" by sending "all star monsters" to LA....

Espn, shut the fuck up and only report correctly.   Jesus they are stupid and only report for idiots to listen.

Poor Vicorino, when all thouse high priced guys show up his chances of staying in LA goes down a bit.  Maybe he'll be back with the Phillies, could be another Cliff Lee deal, trade him away then sign him next year.

Is Carl Crawford still alive or did he spend too much time with JD Drew?

Boooooo.   Sorry, as a Phillies fan I'm required to do that at the mention of JD Drew.  ;D

Rays prospect outfielder Josh Sale was suspended 50 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.
Impact: Sale is the fourth player from Class A Bowling Green to test positive for methamphetamine and an amphetamine. The 21-year-old outfielder was selected No. 17 overall in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft and owns a .238/.345/.408 batting line over his first two seasons in pro ball.

Stats from last nights Red Sox game A's batting practice.

• Tonight was the worst loss for the Sox since the Yankees beat them, 22-1, on June 19, 2000.

• The Sox had not allowed 20 runs since Aug. 21, 2009, also against the Yankees.

• Former Red Sox players Josh Reddick, Brandon Moss and George Kottaras combined to go 9 of 15 with four homers and 13 RBIs.

"That was a blast. “Everyone is running to the bat rack and ready to bat and you can’t wait to get in the batters’ box," Reddick told the Oakland writers.

• The Sox are 0-4 on their road trip and have allowed 41 runs.

• The Sox finished August 9-20. They were actually 53-51 on July 31 and 3.5 games out in the wild card.

• The Sox are 1-6 against Oakland this season. One team started the season with a payroll of $175 million and the other at $52 million.

• Aaron Cook (3-8, 5.35) was done after 37 pitches. Of the eight outs he recorded, four were hard-hit fly balls.

• The Sox hadn't allowed nine runs in an inning since 2006.

• The Sox have allowed 13-plus runs six times this season and 10-plus runs 11 times.

• The Sox have a 7.04 ERA in 11 games since they fired pitching coach Bob McClure and replaced him with Randy Niemann. It's not Niemann's fault, he's basically the guy who got shoved in front of a train rolling downhill.

• The Sox are 69-91 since last Sept. 1. Happy anniversary.

Well, what did the Red Sox expect, trade half the team and expect that to turn things around?  Really seems like the owners think the manager can go out there and win the games, sure the players and fans hate him but he's our guy!

Looks like there is a flu bug hitting our pitching staff, Hammels went down and they needed to call up a minor league guy and Halladay looked like he was going to die on the mound last night.  Luckily our bull pen is doing better now, kept things close and the Phillies actually won an extra innings game on the road, that's been a rare event this year.  Those 2 losses to the Mets were killers, they really should have swept the Mets, then there might be real wildcard hopes still alive instead of false/slim ones.
