In response to hill55's comment:
How much money would the Red Sox need to send to Seattle to unload Jake Peavy and Jonny Gomes? Peavy has about $6 million remaining on his contract and Gomes about $2 million.
What players could the Red Sox expect in return from the Mariners?
I'd pay $5M of the $8M owed. I'd expect a decent mid level prospect with promise.
We save $3M which makes sure we come in under the luxury limit.
We make room for a young starting pitcher to get some ML starts.
We make room in the OF for Holt, Betts, JBJ and Nava to get more PAs.
The prospects we get is almost an after thought, but I do think we should get something that gives us some hope in the future.
Believe me this team with foul this up and get nothing for him like they did with Youkillis in 2012. That was the famous Liliibridge who make JBJ look like a power hitter. We even paid a chunk of the money owed to Youkillis as well.
