    Hanrahan WILL be dealt. Sands is part of the deal. Latest tweet from the 'Jedi'.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Not surprising that Sands goes, hes never even played for us so it's not someone we should be afraid to cut ties with. He has years of control and is MLB ready. Expect other parts to be low level specs.

    This.

    Or some journeyman types off the 40 man. Love it if Butler was one of the guys along with an end of the 40 man bum pen guy - take your pick.

    ‏@JimBowdenESPNxm:

    The Red Sox- Pirates deal is NOT completed though according to Pirates source but in final stages

    Pirates source confirms Joel Hanrahan will be dealt to Red Sox and in fact Jerry Sands is part of the deal as speculated by @JonHeymanCBS

    If Jerry Sands is the center piece of the deal that sends Hanrahan to the Red Sox....then this one will be lopsided the RedSox way

    If we are right here and the other pieces are throw aways, then I find this a good trade because we in essence got Hanrahan, RDLR, and Webster along with enormous salary relief from the LAD trade.

    I really hate that Sands is in this deal.

    I'm sure I'm probably on an island on this one, but when Jerry Sands is a Paul Konerko clone we'll all regret this one.
    Here's to feeling good all the time.

    Lol I'd be sorry too, but there's no way.

    Konerko has really low K rates which lets his power really play up. Sands may have equal raw power to Konerko, but his swing and miss problems will always hold him back from being Konerko, and probably from being a starting player as well.

    Does this trade mean that Ben perceives this group as contenders? Why else would you trade for a 1-year closer?
    I disagree with him, but Hanrahan could have value if he's performing and we are out by the DL.

    If Sands is the best talent we give up this is worth doing. He's pretty much irrelevant on this team. I guess the Pirates really don't want to pay Hanrahan's arbitration salary.

    they still need a big move or two away from contending which i doubt that happens. but O's did have a very good pen last year with a Medicore rotation. maybe taking a page out of the O's Book?

    It's like the Russian Imperial Eagle - it has two heads, one looks West, the other East. Just about everything BC is doing can be seen as team building, and if that fails in either '13, '14 and/or '15, he can bail out from those guys and translate them into specs or young ML players of some quality.

    Beats the hell out of playing to win now, or lose now and win later only.
