More on Boston and pitchers

So, Peter Gammons has an item up on ESPN right now, that includes this:

Red Sox GM Theo Epstein will not trade Michael Bowden, whom Epstein projects to be a very good major league starting pitcher.

So...Epstein won't trade Bowden.  We've heard all winter the Red Sox won't trade Clay Buchholz.  And of course, we've also heard that the BoSox love Justin Masterson and won't trade him, either.

So apparently, Boston isn't willing to deal any of its good young pitching prospects.

Which leaves me wondering...if all that is true, what is it that Boston could possibly be offering for Saltalamacchia or Teagarden?
