Default FOX Sports: Sox Are Indeed Listening To Offers For Sale

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/c...antiago-120813

I think we should keep him but I wouldn't be disappointed of we sold high on him right now.

I don't think this is actually happening. I do think that Jon Paul Morosi, for whatever reason, is trying to drum up interest in a potential Chris Sale deal.

Anyway, I don't see it happening.

MLB Trade Rumors is also in on the action with quotes from Hahn:

This is taking on a life of its own on Twitter as well.

When asked about Sale Reinsdorf said the only untouchable he ever had was MJ:

I wouldn't be opposed to it, but the return would have to be essentially historic. 6 years of control for an (arguably) top five major league pitcher in his early prime.

I'd do it, but you better be getting a haul.

Just out of curiosity, can anybody think of another situation to which we could compare a Sale trade? All the pitchers of his caliber that I can think of who were traded had 2 or fewer years left on their deals, had giant contracts, or were much older. It would probably have to be multiple top 25 overall prospects coming back.

Historic is exactly right. The only way you trade away a guy like Sale is if you're blown away with 2-3 prospects that all have the potential to develop into a guy on Sale's level. And you probably need a couple secondary pieces on top of that.

Need more than 2 or 3. This would have to be a Herschel Walker type deal.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

Again?! The "Should the Sox trade Chris Sale" thread has been recycled more often on WSI than the "Best Hot Dog/Pizza" threads.

It's the winter meetings. It's all over Twitter. Should we not talk about it?

Considering the packages being bandied around for David Price and the fact that Sale has even more value than him, I couldn't imagine what team could realistically put together a fair package. Maybe the Cubs, but I don't want to trade Sale there (and Hahn better be thinking the same thing).

This is more of a "confirmation that the Sox would indeed deal Sale" thread.

By all means, please discuss. But I'm sticking with my original choice of Hot Doug's.

The story is not if "we" think Sale should be traded its that the Sox are saying he is not untouchable. I like that.
