The trading deadlines this year have left baseball fans with their heads spinning. All star pitchers Jon Lester, John Lackey and David Price all got traded from their original teams. Lester and Lackey, both originally with the Boston Red Sox, made a career move for the books. As of this year, Boston is in last place which explains why Lester went to Oakland, and Lackey went to the Cardinals. The sting from losing Lester however, was cushioned with the return of Yoenis Cespedes, the homerun derby allstar game winner 2 years running. With Boston being a small stadium, it is predicted that Cespedes will be hitting 60-70 home runs this year! Price, another trading prize also made his move going from Detroit to Tampa Bay. With all the commotion, it’s going to be an interesting year for baseball fans to say the least.
