Good post. Any which way you put it, it's a gamble. No one can predict what teams will want next season at the Deadline. Wait till offseason Sox IMO lose leverage anyway. Teams will know the Sox are desperate to dump. Dump him now you open up a sport for Garcia and don't have to worry about it later. Then they have flexebility to plan out next offseason with De Aza or Viciedo.
