Sale only makes $3.5 million next season. Also, Matt Lindstrom has a $500 K buy out.

The Sox also have 2 arb eligible players for next season; Beckham and De Aza, plus Viciedo who is still technically in his pre-arb years, but is making nearly $3 million this year.

The more realistic figure, with arb players and the rest of the 25-man roster to fill out, is about $58 million. Still a lot of wiggle room.

Yeah, in a better scenario, I would've liked a better prospect for Rios, but money is being saved and hopefully will be spent wisely.

The million covers the salary increases for being traded.

I have hope still the Rangers have interest in Dunn. Even if the Sox pay half his remaining salary - would be nice to move on from bad memories in full.

Hopefully Dunn, Alexei and Keppinger will be traded soon.
I think Dunn gets dealt at the deadline next year, hopefully for the sox he comes out of the gate playing well so that they can unload him for something. Keppinger really offers nothing to anyone, Sox probably DFA him next year.

I agree but would phrase it, I would've liked a better prospect and hope the savings will be spent and then spent wisely.

If Garcia turns into Chone Figgins I would be ecstatic! He is an 80 runner on the scouting scale and if he improves to get on abase a bit more he would be a nice bench player. Nothing wrong with that. Of course we all want a potential superstar in every trade that we make but it wasn't going to happen in this one.

Nice job of playing poker by Rick Hahn to move Alex Rios to the Rangers and get 22-year-old switch-hitting speedster INF Leury Garcia.

Chance that the #White Sox trade Alex Rios to the #Rangers today "smaller than a bread basket" according to a source involved in trade talks

Couple of funny tweets from Bowden. Smaller than a breadbasket, LOL.

Gotta love these MLB execs using these analysts and reporters and their Twitter accountants as negotiating tactics.
And one of the funniest comments on the mlb trade rumors site after the deal happened was:
> It should be noted that Jim Bowden eats a LOT of bread.

Probably a good strategy. Might not work, but if Dunn gets hot he could probably net a nice return from a contender (market pending).

Now we'll see how the Sox re-invest. Scouting, yes. But w/ so much young pitching locked up cheaply, might still be aggressive this winter.

While this is true, they aren't required to spend anything on international signings. Their allowed amount will be higher because of where they finish, but maybe the money saved on Rios will determine whether or not they'll actually spend it. Plus, they could always do what the cubs did, go way over the cap, and not get to spend the following year.

I am disappointed by this trade. This is all Rios commanded? I would have waited to winter to trade him. For his production level, his salary isn't outrageous. Heck, I expected more of a return then this on Viciedo, and he's terrible.

I hope there's more too this trade or Hahn got bamboozled. What do we need another light hitting, high K 2nd basmem for? Is Jim Hendry the GM?

Or let's analyze it this way:

1. Assume Alexei is trded (is dumped a better word) prior to next season. Let's assume Bacon is our new SS.
2. Now we have Garcia, Carlos Sanchez, Semien, and Micah Owings (sp?) as options. Owings may be a little bit away. I'm as crazy about Sanchez as I am about Garcie ie-not at all. So how many light hitting second basemen do we need to keep the position warm until Owings or Semien is ready? IMHO, Garcia and Sanchez are utility players at best.

This is even better news, IMO. Hahn seems to know what he is doing.
