Rumors Swirling About 'Something Big' From Red Sox

The latest indication that Dave Dombrowski may not be done dealing is from ESPN's Jayson Stark. He states that clubs talking to Boston say they are "still trying to do 'something big'". Stark speculates that the 'large' target might be Chicago's Chris Sale or Oakland's Sonny Gray. Considering the astronomically-high price in prospects for Sale (starting with either Yoan Moncada or Andrew Benintendi), look for Dombrowski to try for Gray—someone he has lusted after for years anyway. The 26-year-old Gray has pretty much stunk up the Coliseum this year (4-9, 5.49 ERA)—and even leads the AL in wild pitches (14). So, there's a chance he could be gotten for far less (Rafael Devers and Henry Owens?). Say tuned—Double D loves to deal!
