On Tuesday, the Boston Red Sox completed a blockbuster trade with the Chicago White Sox for all-star pitcher Chris Sale.

Despite the transaction coming at a high cost for the Red Sox, sending top-rated prospect Yoan Moncada to Chicago, the trade has caused quite the stir among the Fenway faithful. One fan of note — recently-retired Red Sox legend David Ortiz — had a VERY interesting comment about it all:

Listen, Ortiz is almost certainly just joking around with this comment considering another season … but it sure makes you think what this team would look like if he did come back, doesn't it?
