    Jon Lester & Johnny Gomes to A's, Yoenis Cespedes & Comp Pick to Boston

    Finally a deal. I think O's would've been it if Harvey didn't get injured. Alex Speier of WEEI saying Cespedes for Lester & Gomes. That would be a lot for the Sox!

    The Sox also get a Competitive Balance Pick from next year's draft as well, per Passan.

    A's are all in this season. Dump a mediocre player for Gomes and a loan of Lester.

    Not too often you see a star traded for a star.

    Cespedes is going to RAKE in Boston. Not that it will help the Red Sox but they can possibly package him in the offseason for tier 1 and tier 2 prospects. Imagine the Dodgers having him and Puig in the same OF? That's after they rid themselves of the Kemp problem $$$$$$.

    The A's were already the best team in baseball, and they just got better. Clear AL WS favorite now in my book. Just imagine if Parker was healthy for them (although they may not have gone after Lester then). Postseason rotation of Gray, Lester, Samardjia (sp?) is going to be tough to beat.
