ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Cliff Floyd is weary of all these trades and wants to settle down.
Floyd was reunited with former teammate Pedro Martinez and Red Sox owner John Henry when the Montreal Expos traded the power-hitting outfielder to Boston for two minor league pitchers.
Floyd homered Tuesday night for the Expos, then packed his bags for his second move in three weeks. Montreal acquired him after the All-Star break from the Florida Marlins.
"Hopefully, this will be my last stop in terms of trades and all this junk," Floyd said in Montreal. "I'm a free agent at the end of this season, but hopefully we won't even go that far. Hopefully, I can sit still and play with a team that's pretty much stacked in every area."
Floyd, an All-Star last season, is hitting .275 with 21 homers and 61 RBIs.
"He's going to be an offensive force for us," Boston interim general manager Mike Port said in a conference call midway through his team's 6-0 victory over the Anaheim Angels.
