That's bull****, the Tigers went from completely dysfunctional, back-to-back 100-loss seasons to the World Series in 3 seasons. And the Sox already have quite the head start on them; between Sale, Danks, Quintana, and Santiago you already have potentially 80% of a solid MLB rotation.

It would be one thing if Sale was in his late 20s/early 30s, but even if this is a 4 or 5 year rebuild that still makes him 28-29 years old at that point. Barring a truly, truly mind blowing offer, trading him now doesn't make a whole lot of sense, when you're looking to acquire young, impact players who will help the team win in the future, I got news for you, Sale's 24 years old and already the best pitcher in the American League... You're just not going to find many guys who will top that.
