Red Sox president Sam Kennedy made it clear no Red Sox players are untouchable leading up to the Aug. 31 trade deadline.
The 2020 season has been an absolute nightmare for the Boston Red Sox and their fans. Entering Thursday’s action, Boston is in dead last of the AL East standings with a 6-12 record. The frustration throughout the northeast continues to skyrocket.
The fan base won’t be pleased when they see what Red Sox president Sam Kennedy had to say either. In a Thursday interview, Kennedy revealed the Boston front office is already active in trade talks leading up to the Aug. 31 deadline.
That’s not concerning, but Kennedy adding that no player on the team right now is off limits will surely have everyone in Boston wondering what in the world is going on.
Red Sox fans still haven’t gotten over the team trading away Mookie Betts to the Dodgers
The Red Sox turned the baseball world upside down during the offseason when they traded both Mookie Betts and David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
This was heartbreaking for fans to see, as Betts was beloved throughout the city and no one wanted to see him leave. To make matters worse for the Red Sox, the Dodgers and Betts have since agreed to a monster 12-year, $365 million extension on July 22.
Imagine what the reaction in Boston will be if the Red Sox end up trading another fan favorite? While Kennedy said no one is ‘untouchable,’ the thought of the organization sending Xander Bogaerts to a new team is enough to give someone anxiety. Is Kennedy saying Rafael Devers could be traded as well? No chance.
Leading up to the trade deadline, everyone will be on the edge of their seats to see if any blockbuster moves get done. This of course includes Red Sox fans, who are hoping no more heartbreak will be on the way.
