The Red Sox needed starting pitching and a third baseman. It appears they've found both. Beckett and Lowell join the Red Sox while Lucchino and company begin dismantling the farm system Theo built.
This could be the start of something big because if the Marlins could get this for Beckett and a guy who was just limp with his bat last year. The market could get very interesting if top prospects are going like this.
It will be interesting to see if Beckett can remain healthy for an entire season. Regardless, I think that the pilot light has finally been lit on the hot stove.
