Eagle-Tribune

The Eagle-Tribune has learned that a recent target of the Red Sox at the non-waiver trading deadline, Atlanta outfielder Andruw Jones, was placed on waivers by the Braves Tuesday.
The move by the Braves starts a process in which teams have a chance to claim Jones, which expires after 47 hours (The team with the worst record is allowed to choose first, but if the worst record is shared by teams in both leagues, then the team in the same league is allowed first choice). If the outfielder does pass through waivers, then it would allow Atlanta to trade Jones to a team such as the Red Sox, who had been offered the center fielder in a package including Coco Crisp, Craig Hansen and Jon Lester the night before the trading deadline.

Whatever team claims Jones gets 48 hours to exclusively negotiate a deal with the Braves. A prime candidate to stake a claim before the Red Sox's turn comes up would be the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, who were the other team Atlanta inquired about regarding a potential pre-non-waiver trade.

The impetus for the Braves to deal Jones is that he becomes a 10-5 player in seven days (10 years in the major leagues, 5 years with the same team), allowing the outfielder to veto any trade for the duration of his contract. Jones makes $13 million this season and $13.5 million in the final year of his deal next season.

It was reported in the Providence Journal-Bulletin that Boston's intention regarding the acquisition of Jones was to turn around and trade him for Houston starting pitcher Roy Oswalt. As of last night, it was not believed that Oswalt had been placed on waivers by the Astros.

Also of interest to the Red Sox were the list of catchers who were placed on waivers, which included: Baltimore's Javy Lopez; [b]Cincinnati's Jason LaRue;[/b] Toronto's Benjie Molina; and Arizona's Johnny Estrada.[/quote]

i think there are a shitload of players that get put on waivers, i dont think it necessarily means anything because if someone tries to pick him up we can just take back the waiver. I think it is just to see if anyone goes after him, then we can take him back and start talking trades with these teams. I dont think it means anything besides that we are open to trade him...

Some much for giving away Jason


Report: Red Sox acquire Lopez to replace Varitek


According to ESPN Radio in Boston, the Red Sox have acquired Javy Lopez from the Orioles.

Ken Huckaby's stay in Boston will be a short one. Lopez could share time pretty evenly with Doug Mirabelli initially. It's a better situation than he was in as an Oriole, but it still might not leave him with a great deal of fantasy value. Once Jason Varitek returns, he might cease being an option in fantasy leagues. Aug. 3 - 5:52 pm et

You know you're bad if Homer Lance is burning your ass.

He's usually an idiot. The only reason he's so popular is that he gets retardedly excited at any comment that other homers make when they call in.

He was questioning people's cynicism even though the Reds "were" leading the wild card. We're supposed to be dancing in the streets because the Reds are 2 games above .500 and in the wild card chase? We're supposed to be insanely excited just because the Reds have a better record than they've had in the last few years. They're in the worst division in the weaker league of the MLB.

He was also appalled that someone said that the Reds were too inconsistent. They're the streakiest team in baseball. I'd obviously love to see them go all the way, but who knows. It depends on which way the wind blows.

I'm waiting for the trade to pan out. So far the bullpen is not much better except for Guardado, if the Reds can get to the point to use him. It looks like they ended up getting an older version of Lopez at shortstop with a lesser bat. The Reds should have gone after Tejada if they could get him past this season. The Reds need a SS badly. Am I cynical? Yes. But only because I'm a big fan of this team. Otherwise, I wouldn't give a rat's ass.
