If that is true then Ventura is a fool. What was Robin doing the whole first half while this team was terrible. Now, two weeks before the trade deadline he takes our most tradeable position player and decides to make an example out of him with all the scouts watching? Please tell me Robin isn't that dumb. Maybe the Sox are getting close to dealing Rios and this is the cover up in case it falls apart.
Do you believe in coincidences. Rios doesn't just and is yanked the same time as Hanson is?
