    Over under number of innings Bailey will toss in 2014? I say 10.

    Re: Bailey to be tendered?

    I am not a Bailey fan and would not be happy paying him $4M IF he were completely healthy at this point in time.

    Signing him for $1-1.5 with incentives based on his health would look like a much better option to me, and I cannot imagine anyone else paying any more for him.

    Wilson only got $1 M from the Dodgers for the last one third of last season as they did not really know how healthy his arm was after his surgery.  I cannot understand paying Bailey over $4M now and not knowing how healthy he will be by the middle of next summer.

    To the poster who mentioned signing him and then trading him, I cannot imagine that he is worth a bucket of BP balls at this time to another team if he is attached to a $4M contract.

    What would be the benefit of offering Bailey anything? Non-tender him and see what he can't get. He won't get much. 

    Besides, was he any good? Lots of injuries since PED testing  began.

    Then again, just because he isn't non-tendered does not mean they go directly to arbitration.   It is possible something gets worked out prior...

    Bard wasn't a "headcase" when he first came up. This is a meaningless slur. Bard developed confidence problems after being one of the best pen arms in MLB. 

    Bard was the draft pick for the Yankees signing Damon. Despite only getting a short term high quality MLB time from Bard, the Yankees did the Red Sox a favor by saving Damon from the long term books.

    Bailey's issues have been his physical constituion, which becomes manifest over several years of MLB career service. Bottom line, this was not the way to acquire a year's service contract for Bailey.

    Bard was a head case in college. The one reason I didn't like the pick was his head case issues. And he continued to be a head case in the low minors. You are mistaken.

    Bailey's entire professional baseball career has been after PED testing began. Drafted in 2006, and rookie year in ML in 2009. Hinting that he's a former PED user who's getting hurt now that testing began is ridiculous.

    ADG wanted to get a head start insulting all the RS players this year.

    Re: Bailey to be tendered?

    Bailey officially non-tendered.  Good move by Cherington.

    Perhaps look to re-sign Bailey after he recovers and shows that he is healthy again, but still not for very much money or length of contract.  Maybe $750,000 to a million for next year if he is ready to pitch by July.

    Or let him go and let him find another team.

    I guess he was non-tendered according to Salk from WEEI

    Re: Bailey to be tendered?

    Neither non-tender surprised me.  Although I do wonder how long the Sox plan on keeping 4 backup catchers on the 40-man roster...
