Jason Bay was just traded. To either:
The Rays, or:
The Sox rumors seem to be stronger. The move would let the Dodgers acquire Manny Ramirez, with Pittsburgh somehow getting four prospects.
UPDATE: The trade woke up the corpse of Deadspin-era Will Leitch. Bay to the Sox. I’m anxious to learn about the prospects coming to the Burgh.
BLOW YOUR MIND UPDATE: One of the prospects is third baseman Andy LaRoche, brother of current Pirate and ADD sufferer Adam LaRoche. I retire.
The other prospects are right-hander Bryan Morris from L.A. and outfielder Brandon Moss and reliever Craig Hansen from Boston.
