Beckett has more than one suitor for his services. John Henry, remember him? I do and let's just say he isn't on my christmas card list. Anyway, his team is making a play for Josh.
The first part of the story is this: they need pitching and Beckett is the best pitcher, free agent or not, on the market. Boston may also welcome Lowell to the fold.
The Sox deal would obviously save Florida more money given that none of the Sox prospects are earning major league salaries, but Blalock would give the Marlins an immediate replacement at third base.
Well that is fine and dandy with the playing third part but Blalock will probably be traded immediately after he is acquired. He won't be a Marlin for more than a few days.
That's the Boston offer. So now all we can do is grab the popcorn sit back and cheer for our favorite prospects, wherever they may be.
