The Red Sox and Dodgers complete a huge blockbuster deal, with Boston getting rid of $260 million in future salary by sending 1B Adrian Gonzalez, P Josh Beckett, OF Carl Crawford and IF Nick Punto to Los Angeles. In return, they receive 1B James Loney and four prospects: Ps Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster, IF Ivan DeJesus and OF/1B Jerry Sands. Both Crawford and De La Rosa are recovering from Tommy John surgery and will not play until next season. Gonzalez makes the biggest immediate impact, hitting a three-run homer in his first at-bat as a Dodger to key an 8 – 2 win over the Marlins. For their part, the Sox blow a 9 – 3 lead and lose to Kansas City, 10 – 9, in 12 innings, with none of the new acquisitions in the line-up.
