In response to southpaw777's comment:
That would be a serious haul of players. The farm would be bare.
Xander, Cecchini, JBJ, Owens, Barnes, Doubront, and Workman are some of the names I guess they would want. Or a mix a short term vets like Lackey mixed in as well. Thats too much.
I doubt Ben is in on him, but I would be curious to know what they would realistically settle for.
Yeah. This is a 24 year old ace with a cheap contract for basically 6 more years. We would not just lose "some pitching prospects," as seanny suggested...we'd have to blow up the farm. I'd have to imagine any package would start with Bogaerts.
Cool idea, but pass.
exactly. Xander is a must and I Imagine Cecchini too. And thats just position players. they will then want to pluck guys like Owens, Barnes, and maybe a MLB ready guy like Doubie to replace Sale right away. heck, Id tell them to throw in Betts as well if I were CWS.
Send Sale and someone like Quintana back.
Im not approving this move, just painting a picture of what it is probably going to take or thereabouts.
