MLB Trade Deadline: Rich Harden To Boston Red Sox Is Off

Less than four hours after the Oakland A's agreed to send RHP Rich Harden to the Boston Red Sox for 1B Lars Anderson and a player to be named later, the deal is off according to WEEI's Alex Speier. The Red Sox felt uncertain about Harden after reviewing his medical records.

I am shocked the Red Sox weren't confident in Harden staying healthy after reviewing his medical records. I mean the guy has been a pillar of stability over the past nine years. What a shocker.

In case you can't tell, I am laying on the sarcasm pretty thick here. I am more surprised the Red Sox thought Harden would have a clean bill of health. Keith Richards is would have a cleaner medical record than Harden.
