Shocking news.  Despite persistent reports that a deal was exceedingly unlikely, the Boston Red Sox have at long last traded idiot savant slugger Manny Ramirez. Manny is headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-way deal that will land Pittsburgh’s Jason Bay in Boston, with the Dodgers’ Andy LaRoche and Bryan Morris and Boston’s Craig Hansen and Brandon Moss headed to the Pirates.

While it doesn’t seem the Mets were ever seriously in pursuit of Ramirez (despite the urgings of this blogger), you can officially cross he and Bay off the list of available corner outfielders now.  In fact, it appears that Mets GM Omar Minaya was unable to find reinforcements of any kind on deadline day.  Disappointing to say the least.

The Yankees, meanwhile, have catapulted from pretenders to contenders in just over a week’s time.  My head is spinning.
