Basically, if the Sox had to chose between Richard, Quintana and Santiago for the fifth rotation spot they would choose Richard because of his history. Either that or they would trade Floyd and have two of the Richard/Quintana/Santiago group.
I think the point he was making was the Sox traded Richard for Peavy, so in order to have Richard in the rotation Peavy wouldn't be there. So basically the Sox would be in the same position they are now, except would have Richard instead of Peavy, which in turn would make the rotation worse. I know you were speaking hypothetical, but realistically, this is what would have happened.
