The Tampa Bay Rays are currently trapped in the basement of the American League East, sitting on a 34-48 record and 13 games behind the Baltimore Orioles. Recently, it has been made known that the Rays would be willing to trade some of their starting pitchers, as the market for pitching is dryer than the Sahara Desert and a contender will almost certainly overpay.
This morning, it was reported that the Red Sox were interested in trading for lefty Matt Moore. The 27-year-old has been pretty mediocre this season, posting a 5-5 record and a 4.54 ERA in 17 games. If the Red Sox were to trade for Moore, he would be the #3 or #4 starter on this team and would not take many assets to acquire.
However, I really want Dave Dombrowski and company to look at bigger and better options than Matt freakin' Moore. He would help this team if you had Curt Schilling and Pedro Martinez at the top of the rotation, but the fact of the matter is the Red Sox don't even have a true #1 ace. Go out and get a Chris Sale or Jose Fernandez. Hell, if you want to tango with the Rays, try to get Chris Archer.
Make David Ortiz's last season a memorable one.
