I completely agree. I doubt we would ever get value for a young stud like Chris Sale. He's already at an elite level (albeit on the verge of a major injury *cough* Blandman). Why would you trade a young, elite pitcher for someone who has a chance to be an elite player? Or even two players who have a chance to be elite?
