Nick Cafardo writes on how the Red Sox are approaching the trade deadline. One way? Waiting for half the team to get healthy. But if someone else goes down in the rotation, the Red Sox might start calling Ed Wade.
A Red Sox team source indicated that if a major injury occurs in the second half, the team would make a trade if it was in a position to win. For example, the team could swing a deal for Roy Oswalt or Dan Haren if a starter went down. The only way we’ll know if this is a probability is if another major Sox player was to be injured.
