Finally someone shut him up
You dump payroll in there is a plan for it. Ex. Savings from Rios will be used to sign a FA catcher. Savings from Dunn for a FA 3B. Then in the 2014 offseason you add a few more pieces. However if the goal was to pull a Marlins and keep payroll at $60 mil or below then that is a different story.
I'd rather both Dunn and Rios be gone, but I'd rather we eat part of the deals to buy a few prospects in return.

Rios is going well right now,and can be immediately plugged into the rangers outfield and take care of it,which is exactly what they need right now.
Finally, the Sox are the ones with the leverage. Eat a few million if you must,but get some damn prospects!!
Completely agree with that last sentence.
