    If we got a Kopech/Moncada or a Eloy/Cease type deal back for Gio, I'd strongly be in favor of it.

    You can't compare the 2. One was on a failing team that wasn't going to win with Sale, and needed to acquire assets. Gio is on a winning team that is make a push for a World Series. Very Very Different scenarios.

    Let me ask you this. If you had to choose 1 of Giolito, Lynn and Rodon, which would you choose right now? Contracts aside.

    If you had to choose 2?

    Not as different as you just stated. No one is saying during the season.

    Just like dabears said below, Sox were a terrible team when they traded Sale. Not really going anywhere and needed a change of direction. The Sox CAN afford a larger payroll and can sign Gio, Lynn and Rodon. JR is just cheap, they play in the 3rd largest market in the country.

    I agree you can't trade away our pitching
    Here's the 2021 draft order for next month's draft. Cincinnati gets the 30th pick for losing Trevor Bauer to the Dodgers.

    How they are determined in what round I'm not fully sure. Realamuto I think got the Phillies a pick after Round 2, Springer got the Astros a pick after round 4.

    I think Lynn sticks around. Hes not gonna sign long term, and I think Tony will play a big role in Jerry paying him just like Jerry played a big role in us bringing in Tony.

    Rodon I can see leaving because although he accepted his deal this year, Im sure hes bitter

    Id rather have Rodon over both of the others. Hes got the highest ceiling of the 3 and his elite stuff separates him from the others. When you have an incumbent like that on your team, which is rare, you need to avoid losing him any way you can.

    The bitterness part , if it exists, needs to be talked through. He has to understand that he has contributed virtually nothing over the prior 2+ years and should understand the Sox position, and probably be thankful they gave him a shot to start, that apparently no one else gave him.
