According to Ken Rosenthal, Tex is heading to the NL, where he will probably destroy that league’s inferior pitching.
Where does that leave the Sox and Yanks? Well, the same place they’ve been — looking at role players and rentals that can be had without giving up either club’s Big Three.
We’re not expecting any big news for our beloved (and hated) teams. A Bobby Kielty, perhaps. An Octavio Dotel at the most. Nevertheless, on this penultimate day of the trading season, feel free to comment on any and all rumors and happenings.
Update: Minutes ago, Gordon Edes posted word from one of his sources that "chances were ‘pretty good’ that the Red Sox would complete a deal with the Chicago White Sox for outfielder Jermaine Dye."
The deal would be Dye for Wily Mo Pena and a minor-league pitcher that is not Lester or Buccholz. (And hopefully not Bowden.) Color me skeptical. While Dye is an improvement over Pena, I’m still struggling to see how either he or Drew receives enough at-bats to be happy.
