Red Sox targeting Trey McNutt

There's no way the Chicago Cubs should give up Trey McNutt as compensation for Theo Eptein, who leaves behind a quagmire of terrible signings: Carl Crawford, John Lackey, Bobby Jenks and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

McNutt, Chicago's top pitching prospect, revved up his fastball to 95-96-mph this year and has been rusty yet effective in two AFL starts (one earned run). Cubs need starting pitching and might be better served dangling OF Brett Jackson in talks with the Red Sox. Reports out of Chicago have the Cubs targeting McNutt.
