    What do you think of the idea of trading Bogaerts instead of (or in addition to) Betts? He has the highest trade value of anyone on the Red Sox, so the haul would be much greater. The trick will be to find someone who needs an upgrade at SS, then find a replacement for him.

    I think even at one expensive season, Betts is movable on his own. Trevor Bauer brought a haul back to Cleveland, and while he had 1.5 seasons left, it’s not like Cincinnati needed him for a 2019 playoff push. They bought him for 2020 and 2020 alone. And like Betts, Bauer has been very explicit about testing free agency and will not sign an extension.

    If the Sox go extreme and pair Bogaerts (or Benintendi), hopefully it will be to offload a contract like Price or Eovaldi. Sort of like how Seattle paired Edwin Diaz with the massive albatross-asaurus contract of Robinson Cano. That deal certainly worked out ok for Seattle, getting two top 100 prospects.
