Dodgers, Red Sox Working On Blockbuster Trade, Per Reports

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox are reportedly working on a deal that would send Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto to the west side, according to multiple reports.

This news comes on the heels of reports that Gonzalez and Beckett had been claimed by the Dodgers off waivers earlier Friday.

One major speed bump in this potential blockbuster is Beckett's 10-5 rights, allowing him to veto any trade. Gonzalez, on the other hand, can't block a trade to Los Angeles while Punto and Crawford are free to be traded anywhere after clearing waivers earlier this month.

It's still early, but this could change the entire landscape of the National League if general manager Ned Colletti is able to pull it off.

And apparently whoever said blockbusters can't happen in August didn't realize the true depth of the Dodgers' pockets.
