Better be a really really good prospect.

Is teabag under contract for next year?

Too bad Toronto wouldnt take back Rios. But we need a LH bat because Done isnt hitting and neither is AJ.

I think Wshfl may be onto something there with Thornton-for-Rasmus...

Good call.

Sounds like the deal is done and will be announced by Kenny in about 10 minutes.

Danks, Floyd also on market. #tradedeadline

We better be getting major league ready pitchers in return then. I don't mind trading these guys if we can get a good haul back but I do not want to go back to the days where we had no pitching. I couldn't stomach watching 2 or 3 Danny Wrights in the rotation for the next few years.

My hunch is that they would be the VERY last ones to take a Rios, even for free.

Interesting tidbit that came out of that was DeAza starting in CF today. Something giving on Rios?

the Sox promoted outfielder Alejandro De Aza and he is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers. Slump-ridden Alex Rios is headed for the bench, with Williams saying that should be a warning to the entire team, not just Rios.

Frasor is a Saluki, so I already like the deal.

Getting Stewart could help ease the pain of losing Hudson. He'll have to improve that WHIP though.

So Jackson gets dealt at the deadline in two consecutive years, both times in potential "flip" deals?

would rather they eat Teabag's salary...

Send Thorny and jackson to cards for Rasmus.

Then trade Q to the braves and move Rios back to RF. start Rasmus everyday in CF.

So what does it all mean?

I guess it's still KW on the fence regarding this season right? They still have 4 1/2 starters, subtraction of Teahen means little for this season, etc.   .  . so are they still "all in"?

Our offense blows... we are all in with pitching.

If hes trading Danks he better get a truck load of talent back.

If they become the dark horse in the Carlos Beltran sweepstakes, then yes - they are "all in."

Rzepczynski

Has he ever faced AJ?  Imagine Harry Carey calling that one....
