    According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the three-team, five-player Mookie Betts trade is being held up due to concerns over Brusdar Graterol's medical review.

    The Boston front office now views Graterol "more as a reliever than as a starter" long term after looking over the hard-throwing right-hander's medical records.

    Rosenthal writes that the Red Sox "might ask for an additional player and/or money to bridge the gap" and that the trade should ultimately go through, "but perhaps not in its original reported form."

    Given the gas cans and igniters coming out of the Red Sox bullpen last year, I'd see that as a feature and not a bug.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    LOL...and it's not like the Twins made some great secret about it. They've said publicly that his future might be in the pen, given his lack of 3rd pitch and the fact that he can dominate in short stints. Nothing but bullshit...

    Don't drop him just yet. Minnesota may give new meaning to the baseball term "Twin killing".

    If so, this non-trade could be the only reason this native New Yorker has to celebrate Boston. Which would be a seismic shift in my universe. However, I’m still resigned to building my freeze/keeper list without him.
