Red Sox’ Reported Blockbuster Deal Would Give Team Salary Cap Flexibility Going Forward (Video)

A deal is supposedly in place that would send several Red Sox players packing and bring in a whole bunch of prospects with tons of talent. But Boston will at least get one definite positive: salary cap flexibility.

If the proposed deal, which includes the likes of Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford, goes through, it could save the Red Sox up to $270 million over the next seven years. While the Sox could see a significant downswing for a few seasons without elite talent on board, the money saved could be better served in players that could help improve the franchise long-term.

NESN's Tom Caron and Jim Rice debate the deal and offer up some thoughts on how it could impact the future of the Red Sox.
