All the Todd Ritchie deal did was give the Pirates a chance to see our prospects fail. You could argue, those guys could have been used in a different deal to get a better player, but the Sox didn't really get burned there.
The Sox gave up Gio Gonzalez for one year of Swisher and then sold him for NOTHING.
They missed out on a huge talent in Gio and had a hot prospect in DLS that could have been used in a different deal.
Just freaking a terrible. That move still makes me angry.
