This is a legitimate take. I don't feel this way. I'm not sure if I should but to me I don't need for them to be punished. I just want them wearing different laundry. Maybe that's the easy take and yours is the right one.Trading one or both of them just feels wrong to me. The Red Sox would actually get something of value out of removing these two assholes from the team and they also get to avoid dealing with it publicly in a way that shows they want to lead on this issue instead of BLM just happening around them. And the two players get to go play for a team a whole lot better than the Sox and avoid any kind of accountability for their actions. And I would assume if they are traded it won't be accompanied by any kind of statement repudiating both guys because that's sort of a slap in the face to the organization trading for them. I'd rather have them just both be released.
You can't avoid having players who feel the way these guys do. We probably have others already on the team. To me what needs to be addressed is that they spoke out in a way that perpetuates hurt and so they need to be gone. But being gone is enough for me.
