Pretty good move for the Cards, Ramsey was only the #11 prospect of them.

Seems to be having a pretty decent '14 campaign though with his +900 ops

The Indians of the last 5-10 years seem to be perpetually trading off veteran players for prospects just as they inch back toward being contenders.

Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale 5m
The #Athletics do it again, acquire Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes from #Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes, with @Alexspeir breaking the news.

Jeff Passan ‏@JeffPassan 5m Source: Boston also getting a competitive balance draft pick from Oakland. Boston will send cash to the A's.

EDIT:
Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale
The Oakland #Athletics will get $650,000 from the #RedSox in the Lester/Gomes-Cespedes,trade http://usat.ly/1n6Q5AN

Sporting News reporting Lester & Gomes traded to Oakland for Cespedes. Wow. That seems a lot for a rental. Oakland's pitching is absolutely loaded.

JIM BOWDEN ‏@JimBowdenESPNxm 4m

Red Sox plan is clear…trade 2 months of Lester for 3 1/2 years of Cespedes..then resign Lester in November #RedSox

Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale 3m


The #Athletics are ecstatic with the trade, and the #RedSox also are pleased. The #A's suddenly have a killer rotation.


Alex Speier ‏@alexspeier 2m


Updated story on Sox' acquisition of Cespedes for Lester/Gomes. Worth noting: Cespedes a free agent after '15

Didn't see that monster trade coming. Great move for both sides, especially for Boston if they can get Lester to re-sign in the offseason.

Hence the reason for the A's to trade him. Cespedes is a nice player, but he hasn't been good enough to warrant the huge contract he will get, and even if is was the A's weren't going to pay him anyway. They probably figured going for it this year with a super awesome rotation is worth more than trading him next year or letting him go for a comp pick.

MLB Network PR ‏@MLBNetworkPR 7m

.@Joelsherman1 on Lester deal: "[Beane] ain't messing around anymore...He's tired of hearing he doesn't win in the playoffs

MLB Network PR ‏@MLBNetworkPR 27m
.@pgammo:"[Beane] said to me, 'You’re always weighing prospects vs the present.' The present is really undervalued right now

Ballsy move by Billy.

I bet Cespedes will be tremendously popular in Boston.

JIM BOWDEN ‏@JimBowdenESPNxm 1m

clarification: Cespedes is Free agent after 2015 because he has an opt out clause that allows him to be a free agent and avoid arbitration


JOEL SHERMAN
Cespedes language: If new pact not agreed to by later of 10/31/15 or 5 days following club's last gm in '15, player released
