Heyman On Gresh & Zo: Red Sox ‘Not Going To Sell’ At Deadline
" BOSTON (CBS) -  The Boston Red Sox are back under .500 after Monday night’s 9-1 loss to the Texas Rangers, but don’t expect a fire sale at next week’s trade deadline.

“They’re not going to sell; it’s not even worth talking about. There are two wild cards and they’re not set yet,” CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Gresh & Zolak Tuesday morning. “If you’re around .500 now, with an extra wild card, and have a $170 mill payroll, I don’t think it’s realistic for a big sale.”

“I think if the Orioles are still in it, you have to think you’re still in it too,” added Heyman.

The Red Sox currently sit four games back of the Angels and Athletics for the two wild card spots. While Heyman says the Red Sox are still in the hunt, it may not be a bad idea to “sell” one of their players to shake things up a bit.
