    The #RedSox negotiated with Ellsbury after the season. But they were not in that neighborhood.

    There is no way to spin this as "no big deal"

    It's a big deal.  Regardlesss of the money - the sox now have a huge hole in OF and the Yankees now have a great CF.

    Remember when sox tried to sign Bernie williams?  It never happens that way.  It's a one way street from Boston to NYY

    Well said, 100 percent correct. Luchinno and Ben jerked him around and the Red Sox have made a lot of money this year. This team over achieved this year.

    Ellsbury played it just like Papelbon. Turned down every extension offer the #RedSox made, became a free agent and took the biggest deal.

    Pete Abraham ‏@PeteAbe

    20s

    Cue angry #RedSox fans blaming Scott Boras for Ellsbury deciding to hire him as an agent.

     

     

     

     

     



    Sorry JBay I knew this was going to happen. Ben and Luchinno were cheap on this one, bad move as bad as Damon in 2006.

     

     



    Cheap?? Hate to see him go, especially to NY, but no way I would want them to sign him to that contract, AL.

    Dont be fooled they are going to sign Cano as well, don't ever trust Cashman or no chin when he talks about saving money for the luxury tax. Unreal.

    [/QUOTE]


    I would not be at all surprised if they sign both Cano and Tanaka.

    Nothing to like about this, but it is easy to understand. The Yankees way is always to spend the money to get to the top. They have 27 championships to show for it, so one cannot say that it doesn't work. As for Ellsbury, how can he turn down 153 million? Anyone would be crazy to turn that down. We may not like it , but it is a fact of life in baseball today.

    The Yankee minor league system is overhyped and their younger players are not great. Monterro the overhyped rookie catcher cannot make it out of the minor leagues.  They have to spend big. Brett Gardner is a joke and now they can dump him as well.  They have to retool Jeter is done, Teixeira is coming back from a major injury and Granderson is gone.

    The problem with us is that Bradley is not theat good and needs more minor league time.

    Are you serious--they offered him the same money as Pedroia--you are telling me you would have paid him $153 M --seriously--and they jerked him around --come back down to earth and read what the rest of Red Sox Nation is saying---you are on an island that is floating out to sea.

    The Yankees probably have a good idea that A-Rod will not be back, thereby freeing up a lot of money.

    He is a better player than Pedroia, smell the coffee and was worth a lot more. Now we have a hole in Centerfield, no leadoff hitter. This is not good and it weakened us tremendously but we did get AJ. Great move Ben.

    2 issues 

    RS must face him 19 times per year for 7 years RS fans will hate it every time he gets up

    NYY must pay him 20 mil + for 7 years or to age 37 RS fans will love it in 4 or 5 years laughing every time he gets up. 

    IMHO NYY should have signed Cano first. Cano's price just went to 25+ mil per year for 8 years

    Cheap? Hardly.  They were smart.  For 153 million a guy better hit 40 HRS and drive in 130 runs every year.  Ells is not that guy.

    As far as I know, John Henry has as much, or more , money as does Steinbrenner.  But I think it is wonderful that we have so many posters trying to save him money . I am sure he deeply appreciates it.

    I knew he wasn't coming back, but you can't tell me his heart was in it for the Sox if this is the case. The only reason the Yanks would pay him that much is if they were in a bidding war against other teams, likely worth 1M per year less in other offers. He took this one, because having 153 million for the rest of your life is way different than 145.

    Screw Jacoby.
