Have you seen the money thrown around the free agent market this year? Check out the contracts that BJ Upton and Angel Pagan got during free agency. Not just annual payout but length of contracts too. Rios is better than both of those guys and is signed for less years and you think nobody would want him in a trade? It's a mistake to undervalue our players.
