Chicago Tribune Live looked at the trades of Carlos Quentin and Jason Frasor, both of which were made to save money. The Quentin deal, though, did add a few much-needed arms to the team's farm system. Could that money the Sox saved be used to sign Yoenis Cespedes?

Around the division:
Tony Andracki of Cubs Talk says the Tigers have the best package of players to offer for Matt Garza. That's bad news for the short term -- the Sox have a good rotation, but not one that could likely compete with a Detroit five of Garza, Justin Verlander, Doug Fister (all of whom can be considered aces), Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello.
Speaking of Cubs connections in the division, Cleveland reportedly has some level of interest in former North Side first baseman Carlos Pena.
