Nice piece on Eric Chavez in the Wall Street Journal today by Daniel Barbarisi.
OT, but the Red Sox have put Jon Lester and Jacoby Ellsbury on waivers.
I think Cashman should claim Lester.
A-Gon and Beckett both made it through yesterday (I think -- I'm getting this from Nick Cafardo, who's a little unclear).
I think they should put a claim in on Beckett, then if they get him they can force him to sell peanuts in the bleachers.
ESPN: "... a growing possibility that Gonzalez could be headed to L.A., multiple baseball sources said Friday."
I brought this topic to the game thread. Beckett was claimed as well.
