Barry Rozner breaks down the trade situation:
Paul Konerko would fetch a bunch, but he’s got full no-trade protection, would require a substantial new deal to move, and the Sox might even decide they want to extend him considering their fondness for him and his current production.
A.J. Pierzynski will have his 10-and-5 no-trade protection as of June 14, so a decision will be forthcoming on him, but with an average just over .200 the Sox would be selling low.
would that “bunch” be able to play baseball?
