Steve Buckley joined Mike Felger and Gary Tanguay on CSNNE.com's Sports Tonight to discuss potential moves the team could make at the trade deadline.

The Sox have been a good hitting team this season, and Buckley isn't going to belittle it, but does note that it could change in a hurry.

"I don't think [the office] a mirage, I just think it's held together with bailing wire, and if one or two things go wrong, than you're going to have problems," Buckley said.

The name Michael Young was brought up, and Buckley is on board with that addition.

"I think Michael Young on this team would be a great fit. I don't know the specifics on what it would cost to get him. He's one of those guys I've always liked. He's always been a hitter. And I think that you put him in there in the second half he could help the team."

If the Sox do trade for Young and he plays third base, what happens to Jose Iglesias or Will Middlebrooks? Does Steven Drew ride the bench?

Felger would rather make a fix to the closer situation, but check out the video to get his take.
