For more on this developing -- -- bring in our CSN Chicago dot com White Sox insider Dan -- -- and other Rangers definitely have a need for Alex Rios will they be willing to give up the prospects the White Sox want to get a deal done. You know I mean I think that. Fair question I I think -- who the white -- out or the report should ask for a bit for the trade deadline. If the Rangers were willing to part with them then. You know I mean I don't know that it forgot what you -- do it fell and of course they want or play Nelson Cruz that the thing that Carolina -- 27 homers and 76 RBIs.

Who's got interest in the White Sox acquired Alex Rios of Toronto just let him go on a waiver claim of what richt can't consider doing the same thing to create some payroll flexibility for next year. No I I you know I mean it's possible course but I don't think that there in that position because Alex Rios is under contract structure is an option -- after that. The white Sharks. Definitely have some Terrell flexibility to come in a way because they were able to trade Jake Peavy and his entire salary they were able to. We don't play comes off the books they treated -- Jesse -- they traded Matt Gordon they have some money for next season -- I don't think they just let our troops walk away.
