Pirates get :

SP Jon Lester (ML)
SP Rubby De La Rosa (AAA)
SS Brock Holt (AAA)
OF Alex Hassan (AAA)


Red Sox get :

SP Gerrit Cole (ML)
1B Paul Konerko (ML)
OF Jerry Sands (AAA)

I've been shopping Lester for more than a week. He'll become a FA after this season and didn't want to negociate an extension with me. I prefered to trade him instead of loosing him for nothing. De La Rosa is the insurance policy in case Pittsburgh didn't reach an agreement with Lester. Have a lot of depth at SS in AAA. So, Holt for Sands is reasonnable. Hassan (I have a lot of depth in AAA at OF) is for Konerko. Pittsburgh needed to reduce his payroll. It's why I got Konerko.

I confirm this trade. I get three other prospects including a staff ace and he also gets a staff ace and Paul Konerko.
