The Tribe moved a step closer to shipping the popular outfielder to the Red Sox by having Mota in town for a physical that was generally regarded to be the last step in the days-long trade saga.


Should not "days" be in the singular mode?

    No, the 'saga' has been happening for several days and it is a "days-long" event, it probably hasn't yet lasted 7 days, as it would then be a "week-long" saga.
    One might refer to something as a "day-long" saga if somthing was srawn out over a period of hours, but "saga" means a very long story and would normally be used to describe something abnormally long.
