    "I think we recognized that we are not who we want to be right now," Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said. "It's been a large enough sample performance, going back to last year, that we felt like in order to be the team we want to be on the field, we need to make more than cosmetic changes. As we look forward to this offseason, we felt like the opportunity to build the team that we need, that the fans deserve, that we want -- required more of a bold move to give us an opportunity to really reshape the roster, reshape the team. It was a difficult thing to do to trade away four players like this."

    "Thanks to Red Sox nation for everything. You guys are great!" Gonzalez wrote on Twitter. "Excited to get back to Cali and be a part of Dodgertown!"

    A-Gon is good, Beckett sucks ass, Crawford is out for a long time, and Puto is Puto.

    I say good for the Red Sux.

    Why don't you move to LA.

    This is a kick to the gut of SD.

    I haven't followed the Dodgers since I was a kid, but that's pretty cool, I guess.

    I'm happy for their fans though.
