In response to darrylfries' comment:
Had the Red Sox not been changing GMs and had a little faith in Ells we might have signed him for that before the season started.
A mistake we will deeply regret. Bradley despite all the rave on this on here is no where near Ells and Vic is a good fielder but has won few games for us with his bat .
Bradley Bradley Bradley Bradley is ready and better than Ells remember those threads.
A lot of so called baseball experts on this forum were dead wrong not that im suprised.
He wasnt going to sign before the year. Theres no way. The Sox even approached Boras about things and he wouldnt discuss money.
I wasn't aware Boras flatly refused to discuss a contract last year.
Seem's with Ells poor year and injuries he would have entertained offers in the 15 to 17 mill range.
I suppose Ells isn't to keen on coming back or he would have encouraged Boras to at least listen.
I can't say I blame him his integrity and playing ability has been questioned both by the fans and the FO.
