Can we go one offseason on this site without the constant trade ideas involving Rios, any trade will only make our team worse.
A) He's our best overall player
B) He has put up 5 all-star worthy years in the past 7 years, so any argument about his consistancy is not warranted, just because he had 1 1/4 bad seasons with the sox.
C) His contract is now team friendly...next two years at 12.5 million, and a team option for 2015 of 13.5 million with a $1 million buyout. Look at the contract Victorino just signed and we should all be happy we have a right fielder under control for the next 3 years.
