The Phillies have no desire for a third base prospect unless it's a guy lower in the system. Of course they would take a guy like Cecchini but he's going to have less value to philly as other teams. If a trade is made without Xander it will involve 3 prospects in our top 10 which I would figure to be pitchers. RDLR/WORKMAN/BARNES, Interchange Owens with one of those guys and throw in a lottery pick like Manuel Margot. That's what it will take.
Workman is not actually even one of the top 10 pitching prospects in the system, according to SoxProspects.com. Be that as it may, taking three or four of your top pitching prospects for a 34-year old pitcher who is getting paid the most of any starter in the majors would be ludicrous froom a baseball business standpoint, IMO.
No He's not....but he would be on some peoples list at #10 and definitely aound 11 12....besides the point I include him because he's still a high ranked prospect who give them someone who they can slide into the rotation NOW.
wasn't trying to be disagreeable. Just trying to point out that Workman is actually not even one of the Sox's top 10 prospects, which include 6 pitchers, I believe. I actually like Workman, better than De La Rosa (who I am more and more convinced will be a reliever if he makes it in the bigs at all).
I guess I am leaning towards those here who wouldn't trade for Lee at all, no matter the cost.
He could in fact make a difference this year. Probably enhances their playoff chances quite a bit. But I don't want to see the Sox play salary dumpee, like the Dodgers did last season for the Sox.
