Deadline: Shocker! Pirates, Red Sox and Dodgers, Oh My!

Todd Morse@@TheRiddleClassAnalyst IJuly 31, 2008

Outfielder Manny Ramirez's stormy relationship with the Boston Red Sox appears to be over as Ramirez has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Per Jayson Stark at ESPN, Jason Bay is going to Boston as part of the deal, and the Pittsburgh Pirates  get four minor leaguers as part of the three-way deal, Red Sox OF Brandon Moss RHP Craig Hansen Dodgers 3B Andy LaRoche and RHP Bryan Morris will go to the Pirates from the Dodgers.

If anyone is going to get productivity out of Manny other than Francona, it will be Joe Torre.  Red Sox get a wonderful left handed bat at an affordable price, and now we get to see what Bay can do on a winner.  Pirates do what they always do - get young guys for good players - its still a haul for them though.
