[QUOTE]In Response to Re: next 6 games will tell alot about sox : Other than Ells, Pedey, and Gonz, who on the current roster would other teams actually want except maybe Buch and a few from the BP?

Texas lost Lewis for the year and Beckett could be a fit. He is, as we all know, from Texas and would embrace the change in scenery. Mid level pitching prospect (Robbie Ross - LHP), pick up $4M/Y on the rest of his contract and say good-bye.
Send Crawford and $35-40M (of the remaining $100) and find a team that is convinced he can return to form. How about the Dodgers for Garrett Gould (RHP) or the Nationals for one of Robbie Ray, Sammy Solis, or maybe Alex Meyer (LHP, LHP, and RHP).
These two are killing the team (albeit in two different ways). Take pennies on the dollar and pay to rid yourself while you can.
Beckett at 17 per is undesirable, but maybe he is at 12. Look at what the Yanks did moving Burnett. They ate 18M to cut their losses. We should do the same. Crawford is lost and overpaid, but maybe for 12 instead of 20, someone thinks they could turn him around and could add a dynamic piece to their offense for the playoff run. Sox are going to be paying these players regardless, but they can pay them less by including money in any deal to trade them.
Ross, Sweeney, Aviles, Saltalamacchia, Shoppach, Iglesias, Kalish, Lavarnway, Linares should all be in play for the right offer.
