"The proposed trade between the Boston Red Sox and the Texas
Rangers is dead," Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said. "The
players' association's intransigence and the arbitrary nature of
its action are responsible for the deal's demise today."

The fireworks just beginning, folks... could put that little thing we do on 35th st to shame...

Bill Veeck is looking down ( or up ) at us and shaking his head.

Statement from Larry Lucchino

BOSTON, MA -- Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino issued the following statement tonight upon the expiration of the deadline for negotiations between the Boston Red Sox and Alex Rodriguez:
"The proposed trade between the Boston Red Sox and the Texas Rangers is dead. The Players Association's intransigence and the arbitrary nature of its action are responsible for the deal's demise today. Reports that negotiations are continuing and shall continue are inaccurate.

"Once again we want to thank the many people who worked so diligently and in good faith in an effort to consummate this transaction."

The Rangers have their own ideas, per the AP...

"There is a likelihood the deal is dead," Texas general
manager John Hart said. "But at the same time, we haven't issued a statement that it's completely dead."

Okay, I'm now officially tired of this whole thing.

Gammons thinks the deal will get done this weekend. It is dead for sure.

I see the sage of Brookline carries the same respect in Chicago as he does here
