Buyers or sellers? What will the Red Sox be at the trade deadline?

After listening to Joe Haggerty debate with Steve Buckley about "pulling the chute" and ridding the roster of "those miserable veterans", Gary Tanguay had had enough.

"Hold the phone. Get off the ledge, pal," Tanguay said. "Because let me tell you right now: When they get Jacoby Ellsbury back . . . I don't know what's going to happen with Carl Crawford, but when the get the entire lineup healthy, they can still make a run."

"Absolutely," chimed in Dan Shaughnessy.

But Tanguay does have his worries.

"My concern is: Whining with the umpires. Chaos in the clubhouse," he said. "Will those factors derail this club before they get healthy enough to make a charge?"
