Seriously, a horrible look for this Red Sox GM.  The Dodgers obviously wanted Betts enough to cough up another top 10 prospect.  He didn’t get it the first time.  Insane incompetence. 

Can we definitively state that the deal was closed by the actual teams? None of us have personal insight into this situation other than what was broadcast via the news. Additionally there are conflicting viewpoints about who reported this and when they did it, possibly without full confirmation of medicals, etc.

I agree that the perception of the Red Sox in this situation is not good but if a deal was not agreed to in principal and full medicals evaluated and approved, that is not by definition a completed transaction from my understanding.

It sounds like it got really close to completion and then the Graterol medicals blew up the original deal. The resulting change in Graterol going to the Dodgers changed the basic deals in place which also adjusted the underlying values changing hands and thus may have resulted in the addition of the prospect.

You guys actually trust Jim Bowden? Lol

Well on account of never actually seeing the full deal I don’t know what to think.  I’m just commenting on what’s out there.  The other tweet didn’t mention him either.

Dude two quality players, one a pitcher with three years of control don't come free.

They didn’t.  We know for sure it’s 1 prospect and a fully controlled MLB player.

It’s likely Ward and another low level name. 

I think we are all going to be a bit surprised. The Ward speculation is just speculation.

So, *unverified* but today’s news so far is that we’re giving up another prospect and now Pages isn’t being mentioned.  
 

very cool so far. 

Let’s see what actually happens.

It was two prospects before.

Pages was only reported by one source.

I bet it’s Ward Rengifo and that’s it for Stripling, Pederson, and Pages.
