"The Red Sox traded Nomar Garciaparra, minor leaguer Matt Murton and cash considerations to the Cubs today as part of a four-team deal. Boston acquired shortstop Orlando Cabrera from the Expos and first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz from the Twins. In a separate move, Boston got outfielder Dave Roberts from the Dodgers for Henri Stanley."It's running slower than Doug Mirabelli to first base, but SoSH is the place for all the latest news. ... The general mood about the deal? Everyone -- and I mean every single poster -- thinks Theo got the fleecing of his life (and frankly can't believe (a) he'd pull the trigger on such a one-sided deal and/or (b) that that is all Nomar could fetch). There has to be some secret part of the deal -- some other players -- that we have not been told about yet.
The Red Sox have scheduled a press conferece for 6:00 pm. I can't wait to hear the rationale.
