This makes all the sense in the world. Last year there were Sox fan posters on this forum makng predictions that he would win a triple crown, well that was NEVER going to happen.  Here is the deal on AGon, he is a VERY good player but not a franchise type guy  He is not worth the 21 million the Sox pay a year for him.   Now before someone goes here is TEX worth that $, the answer is NO, BUT TEX doesnt have to be the franchise type guy that the Sox needed AGon to be.  The Sox will be better off if they can move this guy and Beckett as well who is done.
