    Steve Rosenbloom on Sunday

     In Rosenbloom's column last Sunday, he mentioned a last minute deal with Pitsburgh involving Rios and the Sox having to eat part of his contract. Hahn called Unkie Jer who nixed the deal..............This makes sense since the Pitsburgh GM was quoted as saying he had a deal where he was willing to be stupid to do but NOT INSANE.
    We can only speculate but maybe "stupid" was 2 top 3 prospects for Rios and part of his salary and INSANE was + taking ALL of Rios' contract?

    Let's also not forget that Kenny Williams has a bromance for Alex Rios.

    Exhibit A as to why this organization flounders....never shitty, but just bad enough to not be a success.

    This is where  the thinking in this organisation is fucked up. If indeed the could have gotten 2 or 3 top prospects, (which I doubt,) but assuming that is true. Would it be more costly to eat say 8 mil of Rios's contract, than to scout, sign and develop those prospects? My issue with the Sox isn't how much they spend, but how they spend it.
