Follow on Twitter ANAHEIM, Calif. -- By the time the Boston Red Sox are ready to jet home from Seattle on Wednesday night, the trade winds might be blowing hard enough in their direction to shave a few precious hours off their flight time. Or maybe they will have made a deal already? "I don't know. I can't answer that right now," manager John Farrell said of the likelihood that the Red Sox can pull off a trade before the July 31 deadline. "I can tell you every effort is being made to."
