Wait, Someone Actually Traded for Julio Lugo?

The Julio Lugo Era is finally over in Boston.

Late this afternoon, the Sox swapped the practically-useless shortstop to the St. Louis Cardinals for outfielder/first baseman Chris Duncan.

Duncan is currently struggling, with a .257 average and just 4 homers after coming off 2008 neck surgery, but to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t care less. I literally thought Lugo was untradeable, at least for anything more than a fresh bag of balls and some sunflower seeds. But somehow, some way, the Sox front office must have convinced the Cards that Lugo had some sort of heretofore unseen – and frankly, unimaginable – value because off he goes, down to St. Louis and out of the minds of Red Sox fans forever.

Ladies and gentlemen, Theo Epstein!
