Recently, The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo entertained the idea that Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka could generate some serious trade interest if the Sox chose to put him on the block.

He cited an informal poll of baseball execs as the basis of his claims that moving Daisuke could generate a lot of interest among the baseball community

This is certainly not a new idea, as his inconsistency on the mound and unwillingness to adapt to a more aggressive style of pitching has frustrated many Red Sox fans.

Yet the talent is definitely there, and a change of scenery could be all it takes for Daisuke to finally figure it out on the major league level.

If the Red Sox really were going to seriously consider trading the Dice-Man, which teams would be lining up for him, and what could the Red Sox expect to get in return?

One thing’s for certain: The Red Sox would likely have to eat a portion of his remaining two years and $20 million to move him.
