going out on a limb and guessing this is a lie
I like both of those guys and I would usually take proven talent over prospects but I'd rather have Middlebrooks, Bogaerts, Barnes, Bradley, etc. The Red Sox aren't a contender right now and they have some prospects who have the potential to be very good. Bogaerts and JBJ aren't that far way either, both guys will be probably be in the majors within the next two years.

I want them to keep the top prospects and have more homegrown players unless they can get a young player with a lot of potential (eg. Upton). I like following these prospects as they develop in the minors and eventually make their way to the majors. Just like Lester, Buchholz, Pedroia, Ellsbury, etc.
