for starters, happy awesomeness to pedroia, who not only got the gold glove, silver slugger and was the starting 2B in the all-star game, he's now AL MVP. this guy is awesome and i think that he is underrated for all of the stuff he's done for the team. so yay pedroia!
and for more shocking news, the red sox traded crisp. to the royals. i am dead serious. to be quite honest, i burst out laughing when i read that they did swapsies with crisp and reliever ramon ramirez, but i can see this as good because that'll give ellsbury even more startingness, and it'll give the royals some of the sox's awesomeness (even though they have a bajillion outfielders already...)
of course, it would've been hilarious if the sox got alex in the deal (i can hear the angels singing now), or if the red sox traded ellsbury for alex. psssht, like that'd ever happen.
let's go red sox!
(and welcome, ramon)
(and hey again, coco.)
