That's just ridiculous. Rios has been in the league for 10 years. People's opinions of him aren't going to fluctuate *that* much on the basis of one game.
Opinions fluctuate on him because he fluctuates so much. He's had good years and bad years. Currently, he's mired in a 6 week slump, so, indeed 6-6 helps a lot, especially if he backs it up and pulls out of the slump. Nobody will pay much for a slumping Rios.
