We don't have enough right now to succeed, and by the time we do, his contract will be up/about up.

The Sox will definitely take a hit in attendance from making these trades, but considering some of the salaries we pay, we can save a lot of $$$.
I like Rios, but he's not a fan favorite like Baines, Frank, Robin or Paulie. I doubt trading Rios (or any of the relievers) will result in fan backlash.

The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
