BoSox hasn't played the LAAA yet, hope Cespedes takes it out on them, ha can't be too happy about getting traded off a WS bound team

Tim K was referring to Price at that point, not sure why they think Price is still on the market, maybe just talking out of their a$$ to fill some time

it didn't take any draft picks for us to get Cespedes, Kazmir, so why can't we replace them with whoever is on the market in 2016?
