Oh they invested it all lright right into Henry's pocket. Now watch Torri Hunter go to the Tigers, the Yankees will get Napoli, and LaRoche will sign with the Nationals, while Ben gets Larry's coffee and polishes his boots too.
In response to smuldy84's comment:
Reyes is much more valuable than Crawford simply because he plays a speed valued position, bats leadoff and is younger. Buehrle and Beckett are similar players. An all star starter is far more valuable than an all star first baseman. And the return Toronto gave up is less than what the Dodgers gave. Furthermore none of these players have been malcontents at any point. The only text message they sent to ownership was for thanking them for shipping them off a terrible team. Then again, Henry might be getting another text from AGon tonight saying the same thing.
If anything the Red Sox are the new Marlins. That trade only looked good because we assumed they would reinvest that money. Looks like they fleeced us. Hope everyone enjoys their $100 Fenway brick.
THE MARLINS ARE THE NEW RED SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Johnson is not an ace, but a solid #2-3. He is the A-Gon of this deal. Reyes is young and fast, but he is not what he used to be. The same can be said about Crawford. Buerhle is an aging, expensive starter in his decline. He is basically an older Beckett. This is a copycat trade.
