If the Sox want to add a bat, there are some possibilities. The only problem I see is other teams are offering prospects, while we're probably offering an overpaid Gavin Floyd.
The historical footnote for a trade of Gavin Floyd for Mike Morse would be amusing. The Sox traded Miguel Olivo, Ryan Sweeney and Morse to the Mariners for Freddy Garcia in '04. Garcia was traded to the Phillies after the 2006 season for Gavin Floyd. So, the Sox would be re-acquiring one of the guys they traded for Freddy Garcia in exchange for one of the guys they acquired for Freddy Garcia. The odd part is that nine years ago, I don't recall anybody saying Morse had a chance to even play in the big leagues.
