REPORT: Blockbuster Deal Is Complete!

According to a report from CBS Los Angeles, the blockbuster deal sending Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to the Dodgers is final and complete. The Red Sox will get first baseman James Loney and four of LA's top prospects—RHP Rubby De La Rosa, outfielders Jerry Sands and Ivan De Jesus and prized pitcher Allen Webster (who was included over LA's initial objections). The Dodgers will pick up all of the rest of Gonzalez's contract, but there is no word as yet about how much of the other contracts will be assumed by the Dodgers.
