It's finally over! Well, mostly. The Sox have received Chris Carpenter as compensation for Theo. The two teams will still have to exchange players to be named later to finish up the deal. Not sure why that is necessary, but it is.
This is not the 36-year-old Christopher John Carpenter of the Cardinals, this is 26-year-old Christoper John Carpenter with very limited work in the majors that will likely start in Pawtucket. Carpenter has pitched 9.2 major league innings in relief, giving up 12 hits, 3 ER, and striking out 8.
All the wait for this guy? I must be missing something.
