the 90 million is for peavy, the sox assumed the rest of the money on Rios which is not 90 million(whatever is left of the 7 year 70 million dollar contract when he was traded to the sox).
I dont understand what you are saying, on one hand you are saying that the sox have to trade for a player of this magnitude, yet you finish the statement by basically saying that the Sox dont need this kind of player(aging OF with mediocre defense).
Sorry, I got the numbers wrong. My point is that I think Kenny's hands are tied as far as signing a big name free agent. He's already spent quite a bit of money on Peavy as well as Rios. Plus, with Boras as his agent, Damon is going to try to milk the market for all his worth as a 35 year old OF. Money aside, I don't think Damon makes sense for the Sox. He's still a very good player but I don't think this team needs another outfielder with a similar skill set to that of Scotty Pods. Plus with the (possible) acquisition of Teahen it looks less likely that Damon will be on the Southside next year.
