Lugo For Byrnes Talks Dead?

FRIDAY: ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick notes that this deal looks dead now that the D’Backs have signed Felipe Lopez (MLBTR commenters were all over the idea as well).

THURSDAY: According to ESPN’s Steve Phillips, the Red Sox and Diamondbacks are having discussions about swapping Julio Lugo for Eric Byrnes.  Lugo would play second base for Arizona, while Byrnes would be Boston’s fourth outfielder.  Lugo has $18MM left on his deal, Byrnes $22MM with no-trade protection.
