Did they not just spend close to $70 Million on the consensus best FA power bat available? If that ain't a splash, I don't know what is.
IMO, trading Sale is pointless. The only thing you could hope to get out of it would be a player of Sale's caliber. Even down the road there's an overwhelming chance that it would be a lateral move at best.
