In response to Softlaw1's comment:
A. MLB isn't a free market
B. I've noted that "having cash" and "weak MLB FA class labor" means you idiots are all in on BJ Upton and 75 million and Napoli and 50 million plus
Nobody is saying Upton is worth 15M per, so I dont think were "all in", we just accept that that is they way it is nowadays in MLB FA...
C. Had the Red Sox paid for value and fit, AGon would still be here, Crawford would have never been signed, and the Red Sox would have already acquired J. Upton and extended his contract.
How do you know Upton would extend his contract...With any team? By the time hes a FA, his value could be well north of 20M depending on how he does...And Im sure you'll think he worth every penny...
D. Red Sox fans are mostly incompetents droning "you have to pay the market", just like the latest GM incompetent.
Fact is, we have to accept the way the market is. Fighting and whining about, like you, does no good. If you were GM you would be in the cellar every year with the lowball offers you come up with...
E. The Red Sox brand is now a losing brand that fans continue to pay enormous prices for lousy big labor performance
The Sox made some solid decisions early on and it brought us 2 wsc. They went against what got them there and it ultimately failed. Now, with BC, they are making things right again. This is one of the greatest organizations in all sports and they will regain their spot on the top once again, with your buddy BC leading the way...
