Why are some Sox fans so desperate to get rid of Sale? Has Trout ever gotten a called third strike on Joe Mauer that left Mauer talking to himself for the rest of the game? How many teams make it to the Promised Land with mediocre pitching, but one or two really good position players? It starts with pitching.

I am not in a hurry to move Sale, but Trout plays every day and might already be the best all around position player in baseball.

Nobody is saying you don't need pitching, but the idea of balking at a trade of Sale for Trout is ludicrous.

I imagine Trout has made quite a few pitchers talk to themselves through out the game.

You're talking about one of the best pitchers in baseball versus a guy that that's not only the best all around player in the game, cheap, controlled five more years, but also likely to be both the best player of the next generation and possibly one of the top players of all time. He had what most people would reasonably call not only the best rookie campaign in history, but one of the best all around single seasons of any player all time. And he's doing it again this year, almost an exact blueprint. It obviously wasn't an aberration.

The Angels are 4 games under .500 with Trout and a great lineup.
How would he make the Sox better with a ****ty lineup? And if the Angels where to trade him for Sale that says a lot that they value pitching over offense. Meaning its harder to find an Ace

Yeah, the heck with winning. That approach has worked for 100+ years on the north side.

It's harder to find an ace than a slugger. It's harder to find a Mike Trout than anything. Where are all the .320+ .400 OBP 30 homer 50 steal guys? There aren't any other Mike Trouts, those numbers don't happen.

Shoot, my bad. Looking back I realized I also forgot Stanton, Kershaw, Wright, and Molina (Y style) to go after as well.

Dont know if the cubs had a guy that brought fans to the park but with the Sox, a guy like that would make ownership very happy.

I worry this whole debate is setting up a thread on August 1st about how bad Hahn sucks for not accepting the Angels' Trout-for-Sale offer...

That trade would only occur if kids still traded baseball cards.

Keep in mind that this alleged Sale for Trout trade was proposed by a WSIer and is not an actual deal on the table.
