3B Trade Rumors Starting To Enter 'The Bizarro Zone'

Haven't had quite enough of Red Sox 3B trade rumors—or at least, enough realistic ones? Well, here comes's Ken Rosenthal with some wacky "out-of-the-box" ideas for you. Rosenthal—who has never been a fan of The Carmine Hose—threw out the following idiotic trade options: 1. ) Ian Kinsler and 2.) Zack Cozart. First, neither player has any significant MLB playing time at third base—Kinsler an elite second-baseman and Cozart a superb defensive shortstop. Second, both would be rentals—as the two become free agents at the end of 2017. So, why on Earth would Dave Dombrowski make either move—each carrying huge costs in prospects? Dumb.
