1. Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox have the best offense in MLB, but their starting pitching ranks 19th with a 4.62 ERA. The failed signing of David Price hasn’t prevented the Red Sox from contending, however as they’re locked in a battle for the AL East with the Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays.

According to Ken Rosenthal, the White Sox received a ‘king’s ransom’ from a team regarding Sale. No word on if it was the Red Sox, but they do have a lot of prospects that would match up well in a trade for Sale. The Red Sox would undoubtedly be a stronger team with Sale. If they could somehow pry Sale from the White Sox, this would be the biggest trading deadline deal in recent history.
