I agree that it is kind of pointless to hold onto a closer when you aren't really contending, that was part of the logic in trading Sergio Santos in 2011 (or at least that is what a lot of posters claimed) however if they are going to trade Reed they need to get more than a Nestor Molina level prospect.

Go Sox!!!
