Default Should the Sox trade Sale?

I'd trade Sale. To add about 5 top prospects to this organization would help us win in the long run.

They shouldn't not trade Sale. If you can get back two or three elite prospects, AND make some team take on Adam Dunn, then yeah, you make that deal.

This is a worthy discussion going forward, but I will wait until the offseason to chime in.

Not unless we get blown away with an offer.

From a club standpoint, trading Sale would be like the 88 Sox trading Jack McDowell. And Sale already is more accomplished than McDowell was in 88.

Agreed.

If the right offer comes about, yes.

No one is unable to be moved in the right deal.

I would hesitate to trade Sale. He is the type of young pitcher you build around and he has a team friendly contract. If he got moved, we better be getting at least one quality MLB player in return in ADDITION to top prospects.

This is why you'd be crazy to trade him. Whatever quality player we would get in return would probably be older than Sale, less upside. We're building for the future, not the 2013 season.

A four for one offer like the Sox got for Floyd Bannister in '88 would do it for me. Sox got two starters and a middle reliever.

I'd prefer a Lamarr Hoyt-type deal. Sox got a starter (Lollar), shortstop (Guillen) and utility player (Salazar).

For me to make a deal, I'd need:
  • Starting pitcher to replace Sale.
  • Catcher/Centerfielder/Shortstop (at least one, in that order of priority) who can field the position and make consistent contact.
  • At least two more prospects, preferably position players.

For me, it would take some team's top pitching prospect that profiles as a potential #1, plus a ready made big-league position player, plus two or three other good prospects. In other words, it probably won't happen, but never say never on any player.

Just give me Taveras, Wacha and filler and I'd take the deal.

No chance StL does though.

Would you take the deal with Kolten Wong instead of Taveras?

I'd want Taveras, if we were to deal Sale.

Wong would be a great addition to the Sox though.
