The likelihood of the Red Sox trading their top prospects

795 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139

    How likely is it that the Red Sox trade any of their top prospects?
    As is the case with most offseasons, the majority of the focus by the Red Sox fanbase this winter has been on the free agents available. There was of course the Giancarlo Stanton speculation, but other than that it's mostly been about J.D. Martinez, Carlos Santana, Eric Hosmer and players of that ilk.
