Red Sox deal for Crisp

That is if you believe the Boston Herald.

" According to baseball sources, the Red Sox and Cleveland Indians have agreed in principle on a deal that will bring outfielder Crisp to the Sox in a multi-player trade. The deal was agreed upon several days ago under the condition that Cleveland be able to acquire another outfielder to replace Crisp, presumably Jason Michaels from the Philadelphia Phillies.

    There was some indication that the Phillies and Indians were hoping to complete the deal for Michaels as soon as last night. Cleveland was believed to be sending one of two relievers - left-hander Arthur Rhodes or right-hander Rafael Betancourt - to the Phillies in exchange for Michaels.
    In the event of a breakdown in talks between the Phillies and Indians, Cleveland was believed to have serious interest in free agent outfielder Jeff DaVanon as a replacement for Crisp.
    The Red Sox will send a package including reliever Guillermo Mota and prospect Andy Marte to the Indians. "

Mota and Andy Marte for Crisp??

HAHAHAHA Red Sox got raped.

Well at least we now know that Jeremy Reed is staying put.
