The Red Sox Facebook tribute to the players they kicked out the door at yesterday’s trading deadline: Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jonny Gomes, Stephen Drew, Andrew Miller — and two guys they dumped earlier with little remorse: Jake Peavy and Felix Doubront. (Double click to enlarge)
Dear Boston Red Sox: These players were traded. They were not killed serving their country.
Don’t act as if you’re going to retire their numbers tomorrow.
P.S. You made a HUGE mistake getting rid of Andrew Miller. He would’ve made the perfect closer next year.
