Trading Manny Delcarmen Doesn’t Mean Red Sox Are ‘Waving the White Flag’

Trading Manny Delcarmen Doesn't Mean Red Sox Are 'Waving the White Flag' The Red Sox sent Manny Delcarmen to the Rockies for a minor league pitcher on Tuesday, but that's not necessarily an indication that they're giving up on this season just yet.

NESN's Heidi Watney spoke with Theo Epstein about the deal and he said that the move was in no way giving up on the season.

"Epstein also said that the Red Sox are not waving the white flag just yet," Watney reported on Red Sox Gameday Live. "He said they still have an uphill battle but they're hoping to catch lightning in a bottle and they haven't given up yet."

Be sure to check out the video below for more Heidi's report, which includes reaction from Red Sox manager Terry Francona.
