Alex Rios

I realize he had an AWFUL year. But given the White Sox man-love for Aaron Rowand, would you consider a swap of bad contracts? Rios has more left on his contract, but he seems like a likely candidate to have a bounce back year over Rowand. Rios is younger, a far superior defensive OF'er and I think he would hit better in SF than Rowand would. Plus he's also got 20 + SB potential, so he could improve the team as a baserunner, just because of his speed. I absolutely can't stand Rowand and see getting Rios as a great way to getting him off the team.

 

Just last year Rios was a 5.5 WAR player. And according to Jim Hendry the Cubs might be hanging onto Bradley, so if that potential swap isn't available, than what do you guys think about Rios?

 

The one thing that scares me with Rios though is his .ISO has been declining for the past 4 seasons.....So maybe it's not the best of ideas, but how else could we get rid of that sucky gamer that can't resist the outside fastball and slider?
