I think this show is already on the road. I think the Sox are more in a place of needing to get injured guys back than they are in need of flipping pieces for more prospects.

The problem with trading Colomé is that there are too many other closer options who look likely to be traded, plus Kimbrel is still looking for a contract.

They still have a lot of holes to fill, including 3, if not 4, starters, outfielders, etc.
Not really looking for a low prospect trade...if some team has excess young talent somewhere that would help the Sox. They really aren't contenders yet, and selling high is how to make really premium trades (which they could really use).

The Phillies may be in need of a lead-off batter / CF now.

Wouldn’t that be fitting/ironic/funny, if the signers of Harper needed Leury Garcia to fill a hole.

Since they are into “being a little bit stupid,” they can have Leury for RHP Adonis Medina.

That would be ironic. Based on 2019 WAR, Leury is having a better year! The body is such a fickle thing; the play looked relatively innocuous.

I don't follow the minor leagues. Would that be a lot stupid or a little stupid?

Medina is the Phillies’ #2 prospect, and is #68 on MLB Pipeline’s Top 100. He’s currently pitching in AA and has a 3.92 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. According to the scouting report, he
