Every year, around this time, the same discussions begin to erupt. Who can the Sox acquire before the trade deadline to give them that final push towards the post-season. They, along with the Yankees, are always the big buyers. The goal is to lure veteran talent from struggling squads looking to shed salary in exchange for some young prospects.
This year seems to be different. 65 games into the 2012 season, the Sox sit at the bottom of the AL East, and have struggled to stay healthy, cohesive, or consistent. They are burdened by terrible contracts who are not producing, or even seeing the field... this year, the Sox may be selling, instead of buying.
