As the trade deadline nears, the Red Sox will have to make some decisions on the future of their team.

Michael Holley sees David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts and Jon Lester as untouchable in trade discussions.

Steve Buckley would deal Bogaerts if the right deal comes up.

"What if Bogaerts gets you [Giancarlo] Stanton?" asked Buckley. "I would give up Bogaerts for Stanton… a guy who can be a 30 [home runs], 100 [RBI] guy, which he is."

Holley is looking at the potential of the 21-year-old.

"Xander Bogaerts might grow up to be that guy." argued Michael Holley. "Xander Bogaerts might be better."
