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.
Agreed. The media was doing the same thing after the Cubs won on Monday. I can't tell you how many times I heard "Garza increased his trade value" with his quality start against a woeful Sox lineup.
