The Red Sox finally completed the much-discussed, non-surprising trade for Javy Lopez. Lopez wanted to catch more; the Red Sox wanted someone to hit at least .200 from the catcher position. Perfect match, considering the circumstances.
Will Lopez be the catalyst that vaults the Red Sox back to first in the AL East? What will the Sox do with him once Varitek and Wakefield return? Will the team implode from the strain of having two people on the roster named Javier Lopez? Can Theo use this to rebut accusations that he "did nothing" on the trade front? Comments and thoughts on the trade, if you wish, go here.
