Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

Methinks teams might be more interested in Bummer than Colome.

If trading bummer gets you closer to winning a division in 2020 you do it. If not you don't. I don't think either of those guys will get that return, but I'm willing to be proven wrong.

I still don't know if the Sox should move Colome, but if they do, the Braves could be a good fit. Luke Jackson is currently their closer and I'm sure they would like to upgrade that spot. And they have a good farm system too.

If we're going to start trading players with 5 years of control remaining, where does it end?  Why not just trade Giolito?  I mean, I bet teams are interested in him too.

There's a huge difference between Lucas Giolito and Aaron Bummer

Do you realize there are new wave trade-happy fans who actively would be glad to trade Bummer, Colome and after last night Herrera, as well as Abreu, McCann Alonso (obviously he's worth nothing) and Leury all in the name of flipping. That could re-stack the system with prospects to develop and talk about.

Trader Dipoto was on Seattle radio yesterday and said the same.  Not only do you not have many contenders, most of the contenders are so far ahead of their competition there's not a lot of pressure to add a bat or arm.  It's probably smart to just hold Colome unless some team is desperate and overpays, which seems incredibly unlikely right now.

Things can change obviously the Yankees for instance might start feeling some pressure.

Every team can use a quality bullpen arm.  Just need one team with a plethora of outfielders in their system.

Teams looking for closers/bullpen help: Braves, Phillies, Red Sox, Rays, and the Dodgers. The Cubs are too but they said they’re looking for a LHP

Ask yourself if the Sox should have traded Jace Fry last year or this offseason, and you've answered your own question. Bullpen pieces, no matter how much control, should be sold high in a non-competitive season. It all depends on the return. They're so volatile from season to season. Imagine if they traded Fry last year for a T100. We'd be lauding Hahn for that. Depending on the return, any of our bullpen performers should be on the table. For all we know, Bummer could absolutely suck next year.

Fry never looked like Bummer.  Sure, if you get the equivalent of Gleybar Torres for him, sure.  If you get a prospect in the area of Tilson, Cordell, Medeiros, etc., then no way.

They're not getting a Torres level prospect, but if they can get a T50+ lotto ticket they should consider it.

Does one of them have a spare right fielder hanging around?

Do I dare bring up my pal in Tampa Bay? Imagine his production in our lineup? I do realize he constantly has hammy problems. I wish trainers would help him out more with that.

I thought of him but that would just be wrong to trade someone good to get him back.

Yeah an outfielder would be nice, but so would a SP but I think the Sox should throw need out of the window and just take the best package they can get for Colomé.

If you can get a top 150 prospect you do it.

I need a quality closer more than a non exciting prospect.

Honestly, we're close enough and in need of bullpen pieces enough that I'd take the chance on holding guys once they have had a decent season. For every guy we trade, we're going to have to find a replacement next offseason. May as well keep the guy around assuming no one offers anything ludicrous in return.

I agree in principle, but they would be stupid not to listen.

You only need one team that views them as the answer to their late innings problem.  I need to be over compensated.  Actually RH has been very good in being over compensated in trades where he has something to sell.

I don't disagree but we are at the point of trying to put the final pieces of the puzzle together.  Two pitchers and a right fielder have to come from someplace.

Those pieces should come from free agency.  Trading Colome isn’t going to fill an immediate major league need.

I am saying that Colome is a better product. 

For the record...I like Cordell.  Needs some playing time.  Five tool player but none of the tools are elite.
