As a Sox fan, i keep my ear pretty close to the grindstone. There has been NO talk of trading Pedro (except forom bitter Sox fans who complain if anyone hits the ball off him). Theo believes this core group is talented enough to get to the World Series, and any trade made (if any) will not affect the core guys. There is no talk of getting rid of big contracts this year, cause everyone's contracts are up this year. This is their year to make a run at it, and they aren't really thinking about the future as much.
Any deals they make, IMO would be involving Shoppach and Youk, prospects who can give them the players needed for a stretch run THIS year. Where the team will be in a year is anyone's guess, but this is the Sox best shot in a long time, and it could be their last shot in a long time. Theo is thinking about the here and now first.
With that being said, Theo has said he doesn't think it is necessary to make a move yet. We'll wait to see if a tough series against the Yanks changes that
