The A's and Red Sox made the first major move of the MLB trade deadline when Yoenis Cespedes was traded to Boston for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. There's just one problem: Oakland was supposed to give away Cespedes-themed t-shirts on Saturday.
Oops. That's a lot of shirts that Oakland has no use for, but maybe the Red Sox can use them for inspiration. "La potencia" is Spanish for "the power." "The powah" is Boston for "the power," if the Red Sox are looking for giveaway ideas.
