This is rationalization.
Besides, for all prospect lists Sale is still considered one. He still has rookie eligibility. The Sox are bottom 3 even with Chris included. Once Sale and Morel graduate this year, with no 1st round pick in the draft, and the lack of any expenditure on later picks, things are going to get even uglier. If Mitchell doesn't rebound and some sleepers don't make the next step, I'm hard-pressed to see any improvement in the coming year.
