Knowing the Sox, they'll trade him for Jacsbury Obyell by accident.

Cue the picture of KW saying "Berry? Barry?"

He has a .749 OPS this year, the very definition of average. Like someone else said, his $14 million will be better spent elsewhere

I'd love to get Odor & Nick Williams for Rios.

It frees up money to be spent elsewhere.

There's around 60 mil on the books for next year, less than 40 for 2015. Money isn't an issue.

That is looking at it in a vacuum. How much did other teams want the Sox to eat salary wise? They could have been offering "something," sure. But they could have wanted the Sox to eat almost all of the salary.

Right, because he does nothing else well other than hit.

Come on people, the guy is close to a 5 tool player.

Yup, they need him badly, we badly need to get something in return while dumping his salary.

There should be some room here for a deal.

Still, its close to $20 million that could be reallocated. Its not like what would come back for him is going to be a really great prospect anyway.

When I think of well run teams by intelligent people I want the Sox to emulate, the Blue Jays aren't very high on that list.

So how long do the Sox have to take him off waivers or let him go?

Nevermind: 48 hours apparently

The fact the Rangers claimed him knowing the Sox could very well dump him on them means they want him. Hahn should be able to extract at least a decent C prospect or two for him I would think.
