If the Sox can move them it may make suffering this winter worth it.

I guess it's just me, but I hang onto both and know our depth is better for it. I don't see either losing value before the deadline, anyway, when the fetch for good first halves could bring in a potential coup. That and we get another look at them and how they fit their roles with the new squad.

I think it is more likely that the Sox deal DeAza than Viciedo but either could be dealt, I suppose.

I would expect the Sox to try and get a catcher in such a deal. The Yankees have the most surplus catching of any team but don't have a place for either guy. This could be another three-way deal, this time between the Sox, the Yankees and a third team that could use DeAza. Giants maybe? Pirates? Cubs? Mariners?

Viciedo would have a lot more value, IMO.

Depends on what the Sox want to accomplish with this trade, clear a spot or get the best return possible.

I mentioned that I'd like to see a Viciedo + for Gary Sanchez deal early this fall, but I just don't see a spot for Dayan on the Yankees after the Ellsbury signing.

Heyman's article suggests that with Dirks having back surgery, Detroit is the best fit for De Aza. De Aza to Detroit could really tighten up the race in the Central. Maybe the Tigers would also take Axelrod in the deal!

The Tiger blew their chance for axelrod when he was non tendered. Seriously now, no worry about axelrod hes not on the 40 man and we dont have to worry about ever seeing him on the big club again.

Yeah, I don't see a fit for Dayan Viciedo on the Yankees, either. What do you think of this possible three team deal: (1) Sox deal Viciedo to the Mariners for infielder Nick Franklin and (2) the Sox then deal Franklin and Jeff Keppinger to the New York Yankees for catchers Gary Sanchez and John Ryan Murphy.

And then the Sox could deal Tyler Flowers to the Mets for just about anything.

Thoughts?

We won't get a good major leaguer or a top prospect for either. I'm okay with prospects in the lower minors with high ceilings.

I think its way too early to give up on Viciedo yet...his left field is more than tolerable and he's got the potential to have the type of bat that can carry an offense (Tampa Bay series...early 2012)

De Aza is adequate at the plate, dumb on the basepaths, and shaky in the outfield. Also not a part of our future plans. If you're gonna move anyone to create roster space then make it him.

Sounds as though the Twins might have some interest in DeAza.

That does make a good deal of sense for the Twins. He would be an upgrade and is very salary friendly. The twins have a lot to work with in their system.

I think you hang on Viciedo. He has shown flashes of dominance at the plate and he is still very young. He and Abreu have the potential to become a very good 1-2 punch if they both develop well.
