The Red Sox once again square off against the White Sox in Chicago. Yamaico Navarro has already been traded for Kansas City's Mike Aviles and with tomorrow's trade deadline approaching a few more faces might be gone by the time the Sox take the field again. You can bet that Jon Lester won't be one them, though. The ace left-hander takes the mound for Boston tonight against Phil Humber.

The White Sox are even more likely to see some changes in their clubhouse as a they have frequently been the subject of rumors today. It is quite possible that a few players might even find themselves in the other clubhouse before the weekend is over.
