Tampa Bay causing problems....

Adam Stern was placed on waivers as part of the Javy Lopez trade, Tampa Bay claims him, so the Sox pulled him back. Here's the story: Tampa Bay Claims Stern

The rumor mill is that Tampa is just being a pain due to Boston not going for the Lugo deal that was suggested. Baseball politics, two of Zebs favorite topics rolled into one!!!!

I'm hearing this doesn't effect the Lopez deal because the Sox and O's have 6 months to finish the deal, when the season ends, Stern won't have to clear waivers.

though not together, I must say. LOL

So the purpose of putting Stern on waivers was for him to be part of the Lopez trade?

Hooray, after being a Tiger fan for 60 years we have everybody on the run this year. Next week in Boston, look out.

That's what the article said, he was on waivers so that the Lopez trade could be finalized. There is some talk on EEI that the Sox picked Stern only because they knew the D-Rays would claim him. I don't think I put much stock in it though.
