If the Red Sox are going to make a trade, and the odds are they will, they’re better off making a deal now. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald)

Standing in their way is the fact that many of the premier prospects they used to have are gone, making for fewer assets to get a deal done. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

One guy who will never be traded is Dustin Pedroia, especially right now as he is sizzling at the plate. (Stephen Hewitt; Boston Herald)

With Hanley Ramirez getting some more playing time at first base, John Farrell has a bit more room to work with his lineup. (Julian Benbow; Boston Globe)

It’s imperative that Ramirez not only give help in the field but start to heat up at the dish. (Steve Buckley; Boston Herald)

Mismanagement is part of the equation when discussing how Blake Swihart’s career has gone. (Cam Ellis; Boston BP)

Kyle Martin made his MLB debut on Thursday and shared a special piece of it with his father. (Dan Shulman; WEEI)

Even with all the extra inning shenanigans going on during the last week, Farrell is still not a fan of starting extra frames with a runner on second. (Annie Maroon; MassLive)
