Back in 2003, Boston Red Sox GM Theo Epstein, along with then-Assistant GM Jed Hoyer, traveled to Arizona to have Thanksgiving dinner with Curt Schilling and his wife in order to convince Schilling to come to Boston.The Arizona Diamondbacks traded Schilling to the Red Sox on Nov. 29, 2003, and the rest is history.Six years later, the Red Sox are trying to land another ace on Thanksgiving.According to Marc Feinsand and Bill Madden of the New York Daily News, the Red Sox are “putting on a full-court press” to land Toronto Blue Jays’ ace Roy Halladay.“They would love to get it wrapped up before the winter meetings beginning Dec.
7,” their source said of the Red Sox.It is unknown what the Red Sox are offering, but it is believed Clay Buchholz and, perhaps, top prospect Casey Kelly would be part of a deal.Remember, the Red Sox were hot and heavy after Halladay at last year’s trading deadline, so it should to no one’s surprise that are all over Halladay now.Unlike former GM JP Ricciardi, new GM Alex Anthopoulos seems to have a pretty good grasp on how to handle trading Halladay. Anthopoulos already has said he would be willing to give teams a 72-hour window to negotiate a contract extension with Halladay something Ricciardi wasn’t willing to do.My take on this and the Red Sox offseason in general, is that Theo and company really want to do something big. Whether it’s trading Halladay, Adrian Gonzalez, or Miguel Cabrera, the Red Sox want to make a splash.Acquiring Halladay would give the Red Sox a formidable rotation heading into 2010. Halladay, Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, and Daisuke Matsuzaka would give the Red Sox one of the best, if not the best, rotation in baseball.I wouldn’t put it past Epstein pulling off this trade before Thanksgiving.Who knows, maybe Epstein will go to the Halladay’s for some turkey dinner in order to get a deal done.It worked once before right You can follow The Ghost of Moonlight Graham on Twitter theghostofmlg This article is also featured on The Ghost of Moonlight Graham. Ryan Truex, Camping World Series East Champion, hopes to follow in Joey Logano's footsteps with a win at the Toyota All-Star Showdown in Irwindale, California this January.
Just like Logano, Truex hopes to follow up his championship with a win at the race dubbed the "Daytona 500 of short track racing.""I'm really excited about the Showdown," Truex said. "You're racing against some of the best drivers in the country.""All of those guys can drive and they have the records to prove it," Truex continued. "If you win the Showdown, you can say you've beaten the best of the best."Truex is the first driver from the East Series to confirm that he will complete in the prestigious race. There is also a last-chance "Open" race to allow drivers one final opportunity to race their way into the show.As one of NASCAR'S youngest champions, Truex, currently 17 years old, will visit the track for the first time "I've never raced at Irwindale before," Truex said. "So that adds another level of excitement for me.""Everyone talks about how great the track is," Truex continued. "I can't wait to get the NAPA Auto Parts Camry out there and see what we can do."Truex is one of the developmental drivers for Michael Waltrip Racing. He is also the younger brother of Martin Truex, Jr., who will be joining MWR for the 2010 Cup season.Waltrip has decided to go all out for his young champion at the Showdown. The team and NAPA are designing an entirely new paint scheme for the car, replacing the white No. 00 Toyota that Truex raced in the East Series with a blue, NAPA-themed scheme.After competing in the Showdown, Truex will get back to business, defending his title in the Camping World Series East in 2010.
