Default Who will be the first Sox player traded?

I can't wait to see the firesale start. My prediction it will be Jeff Keppinger.

If the Red Sox really want Matt Thornton, it could happen this week for relatively nothing. It would basically be a salary dump for a low-level minor leaguer.

I would go with Thorny for the first guy traded. He can still get lefties out, but the Red Sox have too much leverage, so I'm not expecting much of a return.

Thornton to Boston for Curt Shilling's bloody sock and a Carlton Fisk jersey.

Jesse Crain....I know he is on the DL but I think he will go first.

No poll?

My vote is Rios, shortly after the all-star break.

Hopefully he can take a certain announcer with him to so as to reunite said announcer with his beloved Carmines.

In order:

1. Thornton- he is healthy.
2. Lindstrom- take longer because he is worth haggling over.
3. Rios- another guy who should fetch something.
4. Keppinger- please.
5. Alexei- its time.
6. Crain- when he is off the dL.
7. Peavy- see above.
8. Dunn....desperate times calls for desperate moves by a contender.

They'll trade Phegley to, say, Toronto for a no-talent AAAA player, and then trade Sale to the Jays 3 days later to get Phegley back.

How about Ventura? He is still probably their best position player { retired ] that can actually hit and field.

Rios, Thornton, or Crain, any of those three could be dealt first.
