Curious why the Joc deal is now a no go.

I'm wondering if the Sox chipped in some additional cash to obviate the need for side-deal salary dumping and got better prospects in return.  The reason I say that is that the original reports said they'd cover "roughly half" of Price's remaining contract and the revised deal reports take out the "roughly."

Honestly, I think the Angels suffered from little brother syndrome.

Stripling would have been a good pickup for them

Didn't reports say Arte got pissy over the delay and canceled the deal?

this sounds right.  The Doyers sent money with Maeda to get Graterol, another prospect, and a pick, so there's not much relief there.  I think the Sox thought they were getting another Eduardo Rodriguez (#3) when they made the original deal, so that may explain why they probably got a second eventual regular in Downs plus a guy who should also hit the majors as a catcher.

A-Rod paying Bonilla is something nobody would have predicted.

What's next, Hideki Matsui buying the Phillies? Andy Pettitte owning the Braves?

Ironic that they'd sell to a cheater in the midst of a cheating scandal. Too bad it won't happen sooner- I'd love to hear owner ARod asked if his cheating was worse than Beltran's
