Re: Official Trade Deadline Thread
Rios would be a dream acquisition, but the White Sox would need to pick-up money both in 2013 and in 2104 to get him. Maybe a package built around Travieso and Hoover could get him with lesser guys like Rogers and maybe Corcino involved to make it happen.
All those guys plus Robinson for Rios and Lindstrom but the Sox would need to kick in $3 Million or so for this year and $8 or $9 Million for next year for it to be a realistic option.
I think De Aza, for a package built around Hoover and some of those lesser arms is more likely and I'd be all for it. IMO, Hoover is the team's most tradeable guy that they can afford to deal, but even he will need to be replaced by some decent vet who can be had for spare parts.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
