Sox may be higher on Morel than you think. That doesn't mean Kenny won't deal him, he'll deal anyone, but I don't think it's as likely as you guys are making it seem.
Sounds awfully like the time when Gio was traded to the A's. KW promised Gio that he would not traded a 2nd time, only to see him head to OAK for Swisher. I wouldnt hold my breath that Morel wont get traded. If KW is blown away by a trade offer, but he would have to give up Morel+, I would assume he'd pull the trigger
