My biggest pet peeve in all of sports is losing rivalry games. If you think losing rivalry games isn't all that bad, just ask Lloyd Carr and John Cooper about the consequences of losing rivalry games. I realize you can't win rivalry games all the time, but to lose this rivalry game the way we lost this rivalry game tonight is completely inexcusable.

Eh, I care little about a mediocre team losing to a bad one right now. The problems the Sox have require quite drastic changes. Plus, it's the first of 4 games.

I fully expect us to lose 1-0 against Jackson tomorrow on 3 errors with Sale taking the loss despite 15 strikeouts .

Sale and maybe Reed are the only ones that can't be traded. Rios is the only one with any value. They can blow it up all they want but there's not too much with any real value.

Peavy should have more value than Rios. Ace-level pitcher on a very friendly contract through 2014 (and 2015 option).

If they get rid of Rios who's going to actually get a hit ? Gillaspie. You think this offense is a farce now.

I don't think this team is going far as currently built. If it takes a worse 2013 to make that happen, I'm fine with it.

I just disagree with the thought that we need to tear down and rebuild.

We have an elite starting rotation, with depth and more on the way.

We have a young, talented closer.

Simply having those holes filled means we are not far away from competing with Detroit.

We need position player help, certainly. But with contracts coming off the books, we can reload through free agency and some smart trades. For instance, Paulie's money can be reinvested to upgrade several positions. I'm OK trading Rios if that money can upgrade several positions.

I'm OK with trading any position player, but I keep the pitching intact.

All they need are a league average catcher and a decent centerfielder.

And for Adam Dunn to hit consistently. And to hope Beckham hits when he returns. And hope Alexei can find some of the power he used to have. And to hope Konerko can re-find his hitting stroke.

Rios has the 2nd best OPS of AL OF right now so yes, I would think he'd have some value
