But just how serious are the Sox on trading Sale, their best player? According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Sox are very serious. Olney stated that he’s heard from rival execs that the Sox are serious about their intent on trading Sale.
However, with the Sox reportedly expressing serious intent on trading Sale, fans should expect a major trade to happen this offseason. A trade of Sale could fetch a decent return for the Sox, if the front office doesn’t get duped. This will be a big moment for Rick Hahn. If he’s able to pull off a successful trade involving Sale, expect Sox fans to praise the general manager. But if he isn’t, expect more of the same anger from Sox fans that has been persistent over the past four years.
