    Red Sox pick up Stanton for Yankees series
    Associated Press

    BOSTON -- The Red Sox acquired left-hander Mike Stanton from the Washington Nationals on Thursday for right-handers Rhys Taylor and Yader Peralta.

    Boston's trade means Stanton could wind up pitching this weekend against his former team, the New York Yankees. If the Red Sox advance to the playoffs, Stanton would not be eligible for the postseason roster.

    Stanton, who is 38, started the season with the Yankees and was cut June 30 after going 1-2 with a 7.08 ERA in 14 innings over 28 relief appearances. He signed with Washington on July 13 and went 2-1 with a 3.58 ERA in 27 2/3 innings over 30 games.

    "We'd like to thank Mike for the fine job he did not only in our bullpen, but with the knowledge and leadership he shared with our young pitchers," Nationals general manager Jim Bowden said. "We are pleased to acquire two young pitchers with good arms."

    Taylor, 20, was 2-2 with a 1.49 ERA in five starts and six relief appearances for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. Peralta, 19, combined to go 2-3 with four saves and a 4.57 ERA in 27 relief appearances for Greenville, Lowell and the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. [/b][/quote]

    I fucking LOVE that.

    A team fighting for a spot, a team that wants to win, and a team willing to trade and make moves to do it.

            I thought there was a deadline for waiver wire deals too...

            Apparently not?

              The waiver deadline is for players who will still be eligible for postseason play.

              Stanton will not be eligible.

                Thank you for a voice of reason. He's a 3 day guy. If he's the reason that the Bosox go on further then their young GM is a genius. Otherwise it's a usual American League bizarre move.

                  i don't know if it would be bizarre......just something no one will remember unless they pull it out this weekend vs. the yanks. they didn't give up much, and they're just trying to load up before the most critical 3 game series of the season. i hate how the media splooges over Red Sox/Yanks rivalry.......but man, can it get any better? 3 game series to determine who is going, and who might not be.
