According to the Trib (http://tinyurl.com/4eob69), the Sox are (surprise!) looking at some position players for their #8 pick in the first round. It's been forever since we had a pick that high, but how would you feel if Kenny dealt the pick as part of a package for a solid .300 hitter with a bit of pop who could help breathe life into our offense? Let's face it, we don't have much else of value to trade.

If he can change the MLB rules to do that then certainly.

You can't trade draft picks in baseball.

"Are you ****ing retarded?"

Que Mod Edit Guy: That's two violations in one sentence. Not only is it a personal attack, it uses retarded as an insult. Next time you get a week or so to read the board rules.

This isn't the NBA. You can't trade picks. If you could, don't you think you'd hear a ton about picks being traded in the past, oh I don't know, 5-20 years?

I would love to see KW walk to the podium and announce that the Sox have dealt their 1st round draft pick. It'd be even better than the Berry/Barry thing.

Can he trade the Bulls pick?

I was really looking forward to the responses in this thread. No offense to the original poster, it was an honest mistake and one day I would love to have a thread discussing what it would be like if draft picks were tradeable.

You can't trade draft picks in baseball.Dang, I got giddy after the runaway success of my last poll. :redface:

I should've realized, if Kenny could trade the pick, he would have by now!

Just imagine if Ditka were a GM...he'd trade an entire draft for Barry (Ricky Williams) Zito!

The word you were looking for is "cue," btw.

If I'm not mistaken, you could draft someone that a team wanted and then trade that person for who you wanted.

With our results the past 8-10 years, we aren't doing so hot with #1's. If that is any indication of the future, I'd say find a way to "trade" the pick.

You can't and it would be insanely inane to trade a top ten pick with the state of our system.

Should we? No

Will we? It's impossible

Should we? Hell no

CLOSE THIS.

I know that KW would trade it if he could. I'm glad that he can't. You can't keep getting mid-to-lower tier talent on the cheap and be a consistent postseason winner. I know that's where he excels, but you can't give up the chance to acquire young talent. Not in today's market.
