BoSox Blockbuster! Manny & Boomer to Seattle

Boyo! Theo, never one to rest on his laurels, has dumped his two biggest “issues,” Manny and Boomer (along with second baseman Mark Loretta), on Seattle in exchange for a monster package including reliever J.J. Putz, third baseman Adrian Beltre (bad news for you Mike Lowell!), outfield prospect Joe Borchard (to replace Manny), and infielder Willie Bloomquist, whom Theo is “very excited to see leading off.” Manny needs to approve the deal, so nothing’s final, but…WOW.
