Not sure exactly what all has happened here, but if I've got it right -- the Red Sox pitching rotation for the rest of this season will consist of fragile china doll Clay Buccholz and the first four guys from the minors who happen to show up at Farrell's office on any given week.
I mean they almost literally traded away their entire World Series winning rotation in the last couple of days. Lester, Lackey, Peavy all gone along with disappointing Felix Doubront and set up guy Andrew Miller.
Also gone is light hitting Stephen Drew and team spark plug Johnny Gomes.
They got slugger Yoenis Cespedes from the A's, so I guess there's someone to sandwich between Ortiz and Napoli that might give the lineup some punch. Which probably means a lot of 10-9 losses for the rest of the season.
There's chatter about getting Lester back in the offseason. But if the A's win the series, the only team that will be able to afford Lester will be the Yankees. And I'll go crazy if I have to see another Boston All-Star pitcher go to New York.
We'll see how it goes, I guess.
And this just in -- Courtney Stodden went jogging and didn't black both her eyes (to borrow a line from Dolly Parton):
