YouTube: The Red Sox And The Trade Deadline

Should the Red Sox buy, sell, or sit and do absolutely nothing over the next week? The July 31 trade deadline is just seven days from now, and while the Red Sox -- who sit under .500 at present -- are within shouting distance of a playoff spot, it might not be in their best interests to go crazy and start sending prospects out for big names, either. By the same token, though, selling off all of their valuable properties is possibly too far in one direction as well.

What are the Red Sox to do, how'd they get to this point, and is there anyone worth acquiring at the deadline in their situation? That's the topic of the latest Over the Monster YouTube video, found after the jump.
