The Sox system has no virtually no impact position players. The major league team probably won't be competitive for another 3-4 years, if they draft exceptionally well. If they can get 2-3 unbelievable prospects along with a couple of solid prospects, it makes sense. I wouldn't mind keeping Sale, as he's a top 3 pitcher. However, considering the situation the Sox are in, they can't afford to have any untouchables.
