Red Sox Inquired About Wade Davis
The Sox sent scouts to watch Wade Davis and inquired about trading for him. I'd obviously love to have Wade. He was an awesome set up guy and now is a fantastic closer, so if we threw him back in the set up role for Kimbrel that'd be amazing. However, I'm sure that his asking price is way too high. I know that we told the Royals that Moncada, Benintendi, Devers, and Kopech are off the table, so if we can make a deal without those guys or Mookie or Xander I'd be very happy. You know what? I wouldn't even give up JBJ for Wade Davis. He's very good but Jackie was a huge prospect who's just figuring it out and we'd be missing out on a great player for the next few years. If the Royals are dumb enough to give us Wade for anyone besides all the guys I just mentioned, fire away. And if they won't, I'm very happy with Ziegler.
