If he keeps this new approach going and finishes the year strong I can see the Sox holding on to him for next year. And if he performs as well next year they might actually get something decent for him at the break next year.
Or if by some fluke the Sox manage to build a good enough team around the pitching staff to make a run at the division, he's a huge bat in the middle of the lineup.
