YouTube: Is Ryan Sweeney Going To Be Traded?

The Red Sox have struggled to fill their outfield with competent players all season long, but thanks to excellent depth, they've managed to pull it off and remain in contention despite injuries. That being said, now that certain healthy star outfielders like Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford are on their way back, it's going to be more difficult to find playing time -- or a roster spot -- for some of these players.

The 40-man roster crunch means that it's likely someone has to go, so the decision comes down to whether the Red Sox trade value to get value back, or make a deal with a lesser player -- such as a Scott Podsednik -- to try to create some additional room. The player with value in this scenario is Ryan Sweeney.

Our latest video can be found after the jump, but as usual, it's also on our right sidebar, and at the official Over the Monster YouTube channel.
