Is it just me or did a lot happen in the world of Major League Baseball yesterday, for a Monday morning especially? Couldn’t have Hanley Ramirez waited to fly out to Boston so we could just absorb the Pablo Sandoval news over a cup of coffee before work?
Of course not. That would be too easy. Instead both deals went down, which led to speculation and some obscenely bad rumors on Twitter (Trading Yoenis Cespedes for Chris Sale? Um, yeah. I seriously read that online).
So I’m going to attempt to sum up some of Monday’s stories that you may have already heard and a few that might have flown under the radar since the White Sox are suddenly (to be clear they are NOT) shopping Chris Sale and Jon Lester is already (remember these are rumors he is NOT) a member of the Boston Red Sox.
