While I'm not freaking out about his play (like I didn't when he played like a horse's ass in January and February last season), I think an amnesty buy-out in 2014 is a no-brainer.
I think Phoenix would not only interest him but it would be a great fit as a trading partner for Richards.

Part of the reason you send money is to facilitate a buy out at 36 if Richards wants to retire early. That way Richards would get an extra 2mil for the buy out and the Rangers have no cap hit.
