Tough Day Improved a Little

Boston traded a lot of players away today and throughout the week.  The only really exciting player they received was Yoenis Cespedes.  It is a clear sign that they do not intend to try to work it out this year and just build for next season.

I got a trade package that helps out a little bit with the frustration of losing so many beloved players (well mostly Jon Lester anyway).
1.  2014 Prizm Chasing the Hall David Ortiz.  Is Ortiz a Hall of Famer?  Very possibly.  He has continued to hit well, well into his late 30's.  He has 25 home runs this year even though his other numbers are way down.

2.  2014 Prizm Top of the Order Shane Victorino.  I honestly love Prizm.  I just wish they would get an MLB license.  They have the best inserts this year, hands down.

3.  2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Jake Peavy.  The first casualty of the fire sale was traded to the Giants for Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree.

4.  2013 Bowman Draft Dual Draftees Trey Ball/Jon Denney.  Boston may have an early first-round draft pick next year too now.

5.  2013 Prizm Draft Picks Mookie Betts.  Bring him back up.  Let the kids play out the season.
