Sox trade newly acquired Adam LaRoche

Ah Adam LaRoche, it seems like just yesterday you had 19 at-bats with 2 doubles and a HR. You only struck out twice too! I was so proud.. but now you’re gone. That’s right, the Sox have dealt LaRoche back to his old team, the Atlanta Braves. So long Adam! Red Sox receive: Casey Kotchman […]

Sox get Victor Martinez

Remember that offense that the Red Sox have forgotten to provide over the past 3 weeks? They tried AGAIN to bolster it today by acquiring C/1B Victor Martinez from the Cleveland Indians. The Indians are having a fire sale (Cliff Lee and Ryan Garko went in the past 48 hours) and Martinez is the latest […]

Red Sox receive: Brian Anderson (OF) White Sox receive: Mark Kotsay (OF/1B), $$$ This trade, in my mind, doesn’t make too much sense. Brian Anderson is a VERY talented defensive outfielder; however, he’s also […]

LaRoche activated; Kotsay DFA’ed

This probably caught a lot of people by surprise but the Red Sox designated Mark Kotsay for assignment today to make room for Adam LaRoche. Kotsay has been an excellent defensive utilityman for Boston, except his power numbers were pretty non-existent (only 1 HR and 2 doubles in 74 at-bats this season.) That, combined with […]
