This certainly makes a lot of sense from both parties' perspective. To me, it comes down to:

1) Is ROR really asking for crazy money? If so, Slats says no.
2) Does Colorado think they can get the Rangers to add more to MDZ? If so, Slats says no.
3) Does Slats think that the team simply needs time to gel after all the turnover? If so, Slats says no.

BUT, if all those are answered in the negative, then the deal does make sense based purely on value and both organizations' needs.

I will say, the more I see of Richards, the more I'm in favor of the move. I was already thinking that it may be a good idea to buy him out NEXT summer based purely on his contract and age, but if you've got a solid, young top 6 replacement available NOW, maybe it accelerates everything.

As they say, you can't time the market.
