Red Sox Still In On Chris Sale—Also NYY Carlos Beltran

Sale (L); Beltran (R)
It probably doesn't surprise too many Red Sox fans that their team is still in the hunt for a starting pitcher—and that they're angling for one of the best in Chris Sale. However, it's probably a little shocking to fans that Boston is also interested in dealing for OF Carlos Beltran of The Evil Ones. The 39-year old Beltran is having a very good season (.304, 22 HRs, 64 RBIs), but would probably not be able to play everyday in left-field. Thus, the payment in prospects had better not be huge. Stay tuned, the hard trade deadline is 4PM Eastern time today.
