A’s Acquire Lester, Gomes For Cespedes

Cespedes for Mabry???

The Athletics have acquired Jon Lester from the Red Sox, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com (Twitter links). In what will be a blockbuster deal, Jonny Gomes and Yoenis Cespedes will head to Boston. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports first reported that Lester had been traded to an unknown club.

Passan tweets that Oakland is also sending a competitive balance draft pick to the Red Sox in the trade, and Boston is sending cash to Oakland. The A’s landed the second pick in Comp Round B in last week’s lottery.

Full Count » Jonny Gomes, Yunel Escobar, Sean Rodriguez ejected after Red Sox, Rays clear benches

This is stupid. Getting angry because a team stole a base with only a five-run lead?? Instead of yelling, how about driving in some runs so your team doesn’t lose 10 games in a row?

The two teams cleared their benches once again, this time as a result of a Yunel Escobar steal of third with two outs in the seventh inning and Tampa Bay carrying an 8-3 lead.

Escobar could be seen shouting at the Red Sox dugout, where Red Sox catcher David Ross had been yelling his displeasure of the stolen base. Escobar left third and made a move toward the Sox’ dugout, at which time both benches cleared.

Red Sox left fielder Jonny Gomes came in and shoved Escobar in the face, ultimately leading to his ejection.
