Loads of speculation, let's play the guessing game..

My top 10 guys most likely to be traded are...
  1. Jose Quintana
  2. Hector Santiago
  3. Alejandro de Aza
  4. Alexei Ramirez
  5. Gordon Beckham
  6. Addison Reed
  7. Adam Dunn
  8. Dayan Viciedo
  9. Andre Reinzo
  10. Erik Johnson

The Churros guy. They've been stale and cold and the helmet nachos have taken over his spot.

I'll go Santiago, because they have three other lefties that are solidly in place-

Sale (true ace)
Danks (unmovable contract right now)
Quintana (two solid seasons under his belt, and controllable for years)

Erik Johnson will be in the rotation, and they can have Rienzo or a cheap free agent signing compete for the 5th spot.

So Santiago would make sense to move now as a piece to get some help on offense.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Reed. If not him, then Santiago.

I'm hoping it's De Aza. His numbers are decent enough to mislead a GM who doesn't realize how horrible a player he is.

I think on a good team he's a nice fit as a 4th OF; good defensive flexbility, good speed, good pop, limiting his playing time probably will help keep him healthy for a full season plus cut back on infuriatingly high amount of times he just forgets what the hell he's doing...

I put Alexei. I think the Cardinals are going to miss out on their big fish (Tulowitski) and get desperate for an upgrade at SS.

Agree on de Aza. Guy has great fantasy numbers - let him fool some team.

On Alexei, his value is at an all-time low. I wouldn't mind seeing him go, but he seems like a better rebound/deadline candidate. Lord knows this team will be sellers.

DeAza for me also. We have to hope that some of these other teams have horrible scouting staffs and have only seen DeAza on a good day.

For me it's Quintana; he's got the most value (other than Sale, who isn't going anywhere).

Ramirez is getting long in the tooth and expensive. If they can shed salary and maybe get something cheap in return, I think that will make sense to the Sox.

De Aza only made $2.075M last year, and with the known deficiencies in his game, won't get that big of a raise in his second arbitration year.

Besides, we have nobody in the organization who can step up and lead off, and leadoff hitters are ridiculously expensive this offseason.

By comparison, Coco Crisp made $7M last year, and has much the same skillset as De Aza.

IMO, Viciedo can get us back tons more in trade (teams will pay for power potential, which is rare in this year's FA market) than De Aza and the Sox have better/cheaper options to replace Viciedo than they would with De Aza. Plus LF would be a great place to stash a lesser fielding player who can hit for average/OBP.
