MLB breaking news: Red Sox trade Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes to Athletics for Yoenis Cespedes.
News: Major League Baseball's Trade Deadline has been one of the most eventful in recent memory. Detroit, Oakland, and St Louis have all boosted their championship credentials, each adding a prime-time pitcher to their starting rotation. The Detroit Tigers picked up David Price, the best left-hander in the League from Tampa Bay in a three-way trade involving Seattle. Center-fielder A tin Jackson went to the Mariners, while lefty Drew Smyly went to the Rays. Price is the Major League leader in strike-outs, and he joins Max Scherzer and J tin Verlander as a trio of Cy Yo g Award winners in the Tigers rotation Defending champions Boston have dealt away the two pitchers that led them to last year's World Series title. Jon Lester, along with outfielder Jonny Gomes is now a member of the Oakland A's. In exchange the Red Sox get the Cuban slugger Yoenis Cespedes. The two teams in the trade are going opposite directions. The A's are the best team in baseball, g ning for their first World Series title since 1989, ...
Over the last week, the Red Sox have traded Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jake Peavy, Jonny Gomes, Andrew Miller, Felix Doubront, Stephen Drew, a minor leaguer, & cash considerations for Yoenis Cespedes, Allen Craig, Joe Kelly, Kelly Johnson, 3 minor leaguers, & a player to be named later or cash considerations. Surprisingly, I'm not upset about these trades. They only stand to make the Sox better in the future.

July 31, 2014 Baseball's Biggest Deadline Deals 8 Comments big-deadline-trades Some of the big deadline deals have worked out fantastically for both sides, but usually at least one team ends up disappointed. (Getty Images) By Marc Normandin Sometimes the trade deadline feels like a letdown. We get weeks of rumors -- which come nonstop in the days leading up to the deadline itself -- and then often, no real payoff. Maybe there's an intriguing trade here or a weird one there, but it never feels as big as we want it to. That's not always the case, however. There are plenty of trades that reignite our love for mid-summer rumor season, like the one that the Red Sox and A's just pulled off. Our goal today is to recap some of the most significant of the wild-card era. After all, that's the time period in baseball with the most playoff spots, and therefore the most teams fighting desperately to remain relevant past July's closing days. Presented in no particular order, the biggest deadline trades of the last 20 y ...
In a bold move, the A’s, who have the best record in baseball, shipped Yoenis Cespedes and a draft pick to Boston for Lester, an All-Star pitcher , and outfielder Jonny Gomes.
Jonny Gomes on EEI right now, nothing but class. This guy is awesome. Take notes Carl Crawford.
Really disappointed about the Yoenis Cespedes trade for Jon Lester & Jonny Gomes!
The Boston Red Sox clubhouse must be reeling! Jake Peavy, Jon Lester, Jonny Gomes and now John Lackey. Looks like Andrew Miller might be next.
Jon Lester, Jonny Gomes, and John Lackey were traded by the Red Sox today. Anyone else see a trend?
As an A's fan, it is a little difficult for me to let go of Céspedes; however, getting Lester to push toward a World Series ring may be worth it. Céspedes is going to love that wall in left! I'm glad Tommy Milone found a home in Minnesota; A's get Sam Fuld in return. Along with Fuld, the A's get Jonny Gomes back--both can play left field in place of Céspedes.
From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser What a stunner of a morning, with the A's sending the wildly talented slugger Yoenis Cespedes to the Red Sox for ace Jon Lester and Petaluma's own Jonny Gomes, then trading Tommy Milone - who'd asked to be dealt - to the Twins for Sam Fuld.

The Oakland Athletics and Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms on a deal that will send Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester, as well as outfielder Jonny Gomes to Oakland in exchange for left fielder Yoenis Cespedes and a competitive balance draft pick.

Here's the 2014 Topps cards for today's new Red Sox: Yoenis Cespedes for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes (trade with Oakland), and then Allen Craig and Joe Kelly for John Lackey (trade with St. Louis). See the individual cards for a who's who of each player.
So let me get this straight the Oakland Athletics have now traded Addison Russell, Yoenis Cespedes, and Tommy Milone for Jon Lester, Jeff Samardzija, Jason Hammel, Sam Fuld, and Jonny Gomes? I love getting Lester and The Shark but wow, they clearly do not believe in the "if it's not broke don't fix it" saying I guess.
Bittersweet day selling off our World Series assets. Lester, Lackey, and my boy Jonny Gomes you all will be missed. However, we have to look to next year, and I do like the new additions of Cespedes, Allen Craig, and Joe Kelly. They all have upside.
The Red Sox are not liking the "Jon's" today. Jon Lester, John Lackey, and Jonny Gomes.
I don't even know what to say.heartbroken would be an understatement to say the least. Jon Lester: from overcoming Cancer in your rookie year to come back and win a World Series the following...from your no hitter to becoming one of the greatest Pitchers the Sox ever had, and Ultimately winning us a World Series when we needed it most, having the greatest performance a Sox pitcher ever had...Thank you. My only hope and silver lining is that you have the slim chance of coming back. And don't think I forgot about you Jonny Gomes! Your time here was brief, but you with your wild personality and toughness was a perfect fit for Boston, and I will miss you very much. Thanks for the title, Ironsides. I'm gonna miss you
Still plan on watching the Boston Red Sox finish the season... (happy to take your tickets for free, you whine *** . Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes will be missed though! Shaking up Boston sports again.
I love, love, love, love the opening days of free agency and trade deadlines. In any sport. Yoenis Cespedes traded to the Red Sox. A's get Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. Now it appears the Cardinals have made a move for John Lackey. More below as it happens.
Wow Oakland are so dumb.. Jon Lester ND Jonny gomes for Yoenis Cespedes... Seriously yoenis is a beast one of the best arms in the outfield guaranteed... Lester is great but I dnt agree with it just because they got samardzia ND hammel from the cubs... Dumb trade...
I'm at a loss for words right now. I don't know how to take this news about Cespedes being traded. There is obviously upside but I don't know. Lester is a huge pick up but Cespedes has been huge for the team. *** it Billy you better know what you're doing because if we don't win it you're going to look dumb. No matter what Cespedes is still in my heart. I wish him all the luck in the world and who knows, maybe one day he'll be back. Also, maybe now if we get to he postseason Melvin will actually give Jonny Gomes a chance to play a game because back in 2012 I was disappointed he didn't make one appearance. *** Red Sox fans are so lucky to get him. Just imagine how many homeruns he's going to get at Fenway. I wouldn't be surprised to see him become an all out superstar because of this blockbuster trade.
So disgusted with Boston Red Sox two great guys Jon Lester and jonny Gomes gone to Oakland
Jon Lester, Jonny Gomes, Jake Peavy and Felix Doubrant Thank you for bringing us another World Series Champion last year! Good luck with your new team! Welcome aboard, Yoenis Cespedes!
Ok I just found out the news that Yoenis Céspedes Milanés being traded to the Boston Red Sox for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. Just like many loyal fans I'm upset and feel for Yoenis because he is a hard working ball player who was key in putting the team the position it's in now. I also think its a smart trade because next year Yoenis is free and is going to demand lots of money to play for Oakland, which Oakland will not pay. Gomes is a good fit in Oakland and Lester makes staff that much better going into the playoffs. Loyal fans will hate the trade, but in the end its worth winning the World Series. This is a business and in Capitalism their is no loyalty in baseball. That's my take on the trade and I will have to accept it. Thank you for the memories and excitement you brought to Oakland. We love you in Oakland...good luck Yoenis! David J Figueroa Humberto Rodríguez Moreira Josue Hernandez Omar J. Mendoza Leti Rosas-MendozaJohn Lemos
Jonny Gomes can play for my team any day. He is Prozac and a rabbit's foot morphed into a badass kid from Petaluma. And his baseball season never ends in September
Well, if we had to lose Lester, at least he went to the A's. I will miss Jonny Gomes, but he is back home now and we got an awesome hitter. Hopefully, Jon will be back at the end of the season (fingers crossed).
All the best to Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes in Oakland. You guys will be missed.
