C+? Are you high?

not sure what you mean, really......



it is a grade that is sinking fast, to be sure.......they continue to fill the piggy bank with pennies and nickels.....

sure, eventually the bank will be full, but it isn't going to be worth very much......they need to start dropping some quarters, fifty cent pieces, and god-forbid, some paper money in that stinking pig so when we crack it open we might have some value

everything is on hold for a few days to see if there is any fire to the Ellsbury for pitching smoke going around right now......


Ellsbury for RA Dickey is a suck move and would automatically make the off season grade an F

Ellsbury and other stuff for Felix, on the other hand.........

GOOD MOVE 4 YEARS AGO

I don't mind these deals all that much.  None are for big years.  Sure, the money is a little higher than i'd like (and many other fans), but for only 3 years.  I don't see a big issue.

Keith Law says Victorino deal is "doomed to fail."

Boston has the sort of fanbase that screams "THEY HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING!!!" or "ALL THESE MOVES SUCK!!!" if they don't get the top guys on the market.

Face it, top players aren't interested in Boston right now.

Spending money on Hamilton rather than Napoli and Victorino would have made more sense.

Depends on how many years he's demanding.   Giving him a 6-7 year deal would be retarded.

Yes. But rumor has it he's only getting 4.  4-5 years at a $ amount less than the combined money Napoli and Victorino make would make more sense.

If the money they are spending on these bit parts then prevents them from spending on actual talent, then it is a very big deal.......

Has been one of the best RP the past 3-4 years.  Something the Sox desperately needed.
