06:58 AM ET 04.25 | In the eyes of many, part of what ailed the Red Sox in 2012 was the clubhouse -- one that has seen a great deal of change. Buster Olney of ESPN joined Mut & Merloni on Wednesday. ... On Allen Webster and the trade the Sox made to get him: "[People with other teams] felt like what the Dodgers could have done was say, 'We know you want [Rubby] De La Rosa, we know you want Webster, but there's no chance you're getting those guys. What, are you out of your minds? We're taking all that dead money off your payroll.' And when they gave up two of their best pitching prospects, executives of other teams were just scratching their heads. ... [When ]that trade was made, people were saying, for Ben Cherington, this was one of the best trades they've seen in recent years."

It's no secret Colletti is probably the dumbest G.M in all of pro sports.

Funny they don't mention Beckett by name in this snippet, but they have his picture. Could it be they are referring to him when they say, "In the eyes of many, part of what ailed the Red Sox in 2012 was the clubhouse --."

Good morning FN!

Carl Crawford's defense against the Mets in the 9th inning last night was a strong case in point. He drops a sinking liner in left and then jogs after the ball and lobs it back into the infield while the Mets hitter hustles into second. That runner would later score to tie the game.

I'm kinda surprised he's made it this far into the season without a major injury.

There were a lot of factors, including the manager, but Beckett was probably the biggest problem. Given where they are this year as compared to last, seems that the people they got rid of was the old "Addition by Subtraction".

Me as well. I kinda figured this was a "rebuilding year" but I may be wrong. They also have a high draft pick coming up as well.

At least the future looks bright in regards to starting pitching.

Good morning! How close (or far) are you from Copenhagen? Someone on Facebook posted a beautiful picture of brightly colored houses along a canal. Made me want to go there!

If Lackey can come back, do as well as he started out, and stay uninjured, maybe!

If they get him to be a serviceable #5 starter, that may be good enough for now.

If you watched the sox play, you knew these players were turd sandwiches. Thank you Magic for saving the 2013 RedSox season

It's funny how people judge trades a month into the season. Let's wait until September and reevaluate then.
