Just taking the opportunity to open up the comments to folks that may wish to discuss baseball's trade deadline.

If you don't like baseball or think that "this is a basketball blog, why do we have to be exposed to baseball????" then please skip the comments and look further down the page for your basketball related content (and spare us your multiple question marks).

Not everyone here is a Red Sox fan, but this is a Boston blog, so I'll direct you to get all your latest Red Sox news and updates at Over The Monster. Also, for more general baseball news, rumors, updates, and analysis, check out the fine folks at Baseball Nation.

And for even more discussion on baseball, check out our baseball forums.

Just like the basketball trade deadline, there's a lot of sound and fury signifying... perhaps nothing. At least that appears to be the case with the Red Sox, who were rumored to be shopping Beckett but maybe or maybe not so seriously. Stay tuned.
