It doesn't mean they'll trade him. It could mean that they'll eventually work out deals similar to the ones that guys like Pedroia and Youkilis signed shortly after establishing themselves as good, young ballplayers. If you lock a player up early enough (like we did with Waino and Yadi some time ago before their recent expiration) you'll pay more in the initial years while saving significantly down the road, likely keeping them away from FA for at least two years.
