Rotoworld's take

ESPN's Peter Gammons is reporting that the Red Sox will acquire Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell from the Marlins for Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez and a player to be named.

If only Beckett could be counted on to throw 200 innings, it might be worth it for the Red Sox. As is, with Lowell's salary included and two of the 50-best prospects in baseball being surrendered, it's probably too much to pay. The Red Sox should try to spin Lowell on to another team, though they'll have to eat maybe half of the $18 million he's owed over the next two years. The Twins are believed to be interested.

They think the Red Sox got screwed? They only acquired a proven big game pitcher who will be their ace for the next 15 years.

 

And with Renteria at SS, it was easy for the Sox to have the luxury of giving up HanRam.

 

The only real reason this doesn't bother me is because did get two amazing prospects...and Beckett isn't exactly the most dependable. The man constantly gets hurt. We'll see I guess, but this gets rid of Lowell and while our pitching staff will be meh our system has a goldmine in pitching prospects.

ok Beckett was huge in 03, but how does 1 year make you a big game pitcher? Is Livan a big game pitcher?
