Take this with a grain of salt, but rumors are circulating on Twitter that Alex Rios has been traded to the Pirates. He was removed from the White Sox game tonight and was seen hugging teammates in the dugout. Apparently Pirates prospect Alan Hanson was also pulled from his game at Bradenton in the minors.
Again, speculation at this point... but if this deal becomes official, what say you, Redszone? I'm a meh on this one. Rios is decent, but I'm not sure he's a true difference-maker. Seems like Hanson is a good prospect to give up, too.
