Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett Couldn’t Help Dodgers Make Playoff Push After Trade From Red Sox (Video)


As Carl Crawford, Nick Punto, Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez headed west, along with their $330 million-plus in contracts, the Dodgers continued to hang around in the NL wild card picture.

But now, it looks like their time has run out. With three games left to play, Los Angeles trails the Cardinals by two games for the second NL wild card spot. While Beckett has pitched effectively and Gonzalez is heating up, those who cheer for LA may have to wait until 2013 to see the full effect of the blockbuster trade.

See what Nick Cafardo had to say about the Dodgers with Tom Caron in the video above from Red Sox First Pitch.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
