Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford had opportunities to kill the blockbuster deal agreed upon between the Red Sox and Dodgers. They did not, according to a report.
Beckett and Crawford waived their no-trade powers late on Friday night, according to CBSSports.com. Beckett's physical is now expected to be among the last hurdles in making the trade official.
Crawford's contract with the Red Sox gives him the power to reject being traded to three teams -- one of which was the Dodgers, according to reports.
Beckett has 510 rights, which means as a players with 10 years of major league service time and five years with the Red Sox, he has a built-in no-trade clause in his contract.
More to come . . .
