so 5 years 125 for hamilton, apparently the sox cant afford that? really? i would have given hamilton that deal in a heartbeat. the sox need a middle of the order bat, napoli gomes victorino dont count for that. justin upton would be the guy now.
But they can afford a 35 year-old pitcher with questionable ability to pitch against the better teams of the AL for 26.5 million. Which also means Sanchez will not be coming to Boston.
The pitching has gotten no better and they still have not replaced AGon's RBI production. But they have managed to spend the 125 million that Hamilton cost on backups and platoon players and #4-5 starter depth. Yea!
That is kind of funny, becuse last year half the stories were about how Gonzalez was lacking in production and this guy was not what the Sox were supposed to have acquired.
Hey, on another thread, you wanted the Sox to be more like the Rays. So then when they act more like the Rays, you apparently do not want that, either.
Its the same ol' song and dance with some of these guys. Funny stuff. They want this team to do one thing, so later on when they do that one thing, The same people now dont like that. Never satisfied I guess.
