They know the Sox won't give him up for nothing and could hold onto him, so I think there's a good chance for a deal of fair value here.
Indeed. The Sox don't have to trade him, but they should if offered fair value.
I'd like to see Rios moved to make room for Garcia, but only an idiot would give Rios away for nothing. He has value. For a player that has no value, see Wells, Casper.
