In Response to Re: "MVP"...Scott Boras Says.
[QUOTE]Boras loves to make dossiers of his clients achievement's and present them at negotiation time. He also is very astute at comparing his client , their numbers with other players who play similar positions and the money those players receive. The one player , who Boras will use in negotiation is none other than The Kosher Butcher from Brookline's greatest value signing ever, Carl Crawford. If Crawford, who can't hit a lefthender's curve ball, is getting $142 mil over 7 years, what's Boras going to ask for Jakes services? Good old benchmark Theo has painted himself into a corner on this one. negotiations will get very tedious at best. The Butcher signed the over the hill Cameron last year , who single-handedly took the Sox out of any pennant opportunity , they might of had by putting Jacoby on the DL for the year. Playing out of position , so that the over the hill tank , could play centerfield. Assuming they get to the world series, and they better hope they don't face the Phillies, against Hamels and Lee. Crawford will be lucky to get a ball out of the infield. Nobody starts three Left Handed hitting outfielders and wins the Ring. The irony is ,that Old Benchmark Theo will probably let Jacoby walk, because 1. Of the price Tag ( set by the Crawford deal) 2. Because he knows he needs a right-handed bat in the outfield ( again because of the Crawford deal) They will end up trading Jacoby, move Reddick into centerfield and sign Kemp , or some right handed hitter , to either play center or right. This should never happened, it started with the boneheaded Cameron signing, and was put in cement with the outragous amount of money thrown at Crawford, who couldn't carry Ellsbury's spikes.

2009 Yankees, vs Lee and Hamels:
Cabrera (Switch, mainly lefty, as there are more righties than lefties)
Swisher (Switch, mailny lefty).
The Yankees didn't have an outfielder who bats righty more than 35 percent of the time in 09, and they won it all. Yes, our outfield doesn't even have a switch hitter, but to say that an outfield of all lefties can't win it all is crazy.
