With zero pressure, the Sox probably play the Tigers loose,and win more than last year.
I think Rios's nite can help get him traded for more....if he goes 0 of 5 instead of 6 for 6, what is his average? Probably around .260 vs .281...that makes a difference when you are bargaining with teams who need a high average hitter.
Trade Dunn, Rios,Peavy,Thornton and Crain, ASAP!.
Plug Tank into first base,and find another outfielder or two to plug the holes. Bring up Eric Johnson to start for Peavy.
