Trading for Rios now would bring Griffey's replacement for next season, and a LTC for Dunn, would solidify our outfield for the seasons after Junior is gone, with Rios, Bruce, and Dunn.
I have been a big fan of Rios and that would certainly help our LH tilt but I would be shocked if we traded right now for a big-time position player.
Not sayin it wont happen but doubtful IMO.
