POLL: Most Think Sox Got The Most Out Of Punto Trade

Very early voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll shows that most readers (57%) think the Red Sox were the major beneficiary of The Great Nick Punto Trade that took place exactly five years ago today (boy, does time fly!). As the chart shows, just under one-third of our sample (29%) believe that both teams benefited equally from the trade that sent Punto, Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett to the Dodgers and gave the Sox a quarter-of-a-billion dollars in salary relief. A scant 14% think the Dodgers got more out of the deal. You can still vote in the poll HERE.
