Default White Sox / Red Sox in talks...

Chisox have been in active talks with Red Sox and others on star 1B Jose Abreu. Boston was 1 of 4 finalists for Abreu when he signed with Chicago (Milwaukee & Houston were the others).

The return better be big, because that would be a gaping hole at 1B and--IMO, more importantly--in the clubhouse.

Completely agree. I'd hate to lose Abreu. Absolutely nothing wrong with having a solid veteran presence during a rebuild. You need role models and someone to show the young guys how to behave like adults. Abreu seems to have embraced that role. Plus, it helps that the guy can mash.

If they can get an amazing return, pull the trigger.

I am in no rush to move Abreu, but the team is in no position to turn down a deal if they're overwhelmed.

The Red Sox don't have much presence in MLB Pipeline's Top 100 prospects:

#42: Jay Groome, LHP
#92: Michael Chavis, 3B

Granted, MLB Pipeline's list hasn't been updated since the minor league season ended (other than to remove players who graduated from prospect status due to sufficient major league appearances), so these two could climb in the rankings, and other Boston prospects could crack the Top 100.

But as of right now, unless they are dealing young players from their major league team, such as Rafael Devers, I don't see much in their system that should interest us.

Would a deal of Abreu for Devers and Groome make sense?

Not for Boston.

I would do cartwheels if Abreu landed that type of return, but Devers is not going to be in an Abreu deal. Perhaps this is where all those Jackie Bradley Jr. rumors fit in? Perhaps a third team gives up prospects for Bradley?
