So the news is that the Sox and Rockies could not come to a consensus on the proposed Todd Helton deal, so the potential trade is off. Thank God!
You know, deals like this one, and even more ludicrous ones, are bandied about everyday by teams. We just usually don't hear about them unless there's a leak. So sometimes we can panic when we read that the Red Sox are considering trying to get a diminishing, expensive, ex-slugger. But they consider EVERY deal, at least for a split-second. Good to hear they did the right thing and didn't make this deal happen.
