    Manny traded to Dodgers, Bay headed to Boston

    The Red Sox traded embattled slugger Manny Ramirez to the Dodgers late Thursday afternoon, SI.com has learned.

    Jason Bay is headed to Boston as part of the deal, SI.com has learned. Pittsburgh gets pitcher Craig Hansen and outfielder Brandon Moss, both from Boston, as well as third baseman Andy LaRoche and right-handed pitcher Bryan Morris from the Dodgers.

    The Red Sox went back-and-forth with the Marlins and Dodgers as the 4 p.m. ET deadline approached, with SI.com reporting early Thursday afternoon that the Dodgers were back in the discussions. Ramirez said earlier today, as first reported by SI.com, that he would accept a trade to any team.

    The announcement will be made shortly in conjunction with a World Baseball Classic announcement at Dodger Stadium.

    The Red Sox approached Ramirez in advance of their negotiations, and got his OK. The Red Sox are paying the $7 million remaining on Ramirez's $20 million salary for this year. The two $20 million club options for each of the next two seasons were dropped, which will allow Ramirez to become a free agent this winter.

    There was talk of Ramirez coming to the Phillies. I'm so glad that didn't happen.
    Be Not Afraid.

    BIG BIG mistake for Boston....Where are they going to get that bat behind Ortiz in October. I see plenty of Ortiz walks coming.
