Red Sox Snare Cespedes For Lester And Gomes

In a stunning development, the Red Sox got the big bat they needed from the Oakland A's—getting Yoenis Cespedes in exchange of Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. Check out the absolutely amazing throw Cespedes made earlier this year HERE. This story was broken by Alex Speier of Cespedes—this year's HR Derby Champ—is singed through 2015. Apparently, Boston sent some cash to Oakland, but will get a pick as well—the A's Round B competitive-balance pick in the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft.
