    Folks, Gomes could be defended, but Shane for 3 years and 13M a year is as almost incompetent as Crawbust and Ellspuff for 30M a year.

    Unless he deals Ellspuff and acquires a young slugging RH talent like J. Upton, 28M a year for Ellspuff, Shane and Gomes is like claiming that making he rich pay their fair share will run the goverment beyond a few months and save the electorate desired massive welfare State.

    Shane  Value Grade F-  Fit Grade C

    How about offering a one year contract for 1 or 2M to R. Johnson, and offering minor league contracts to Sizemore and Pods.

    No, Cherry goes out and guarantees 40 million to the great Shane, just now rising from two dumpsters to excel as a season long CF'er for the next three years of high production.

    The only gray lining would be getting rid of Ellspuff and his 10M ticket to FA.

    Upton isnt happening so just drop it. And you still want Grady sizemore even though hes out till midseason with knee surgery And is more than likely to get injured again when he comes back??? I like the victorinio signing  even though its an overpay,its only a three year deal and now  you can  field offers for ells to acquire some good starting pitching.

    SV had offers for four years. They would have paid at least that amout, probably more, for four years. They only wanted 3, so they gave more yearly for less years. Same with Napoli. Thats how it works. Or were you not aware of that...

    Naps and Victorino probably wouldnt get more than 10-12M per if they went 4 years. The Sox just paid extra to have one less year because they have the extra cash to do it. They re working within THEIR budget, so why hate?

    SV had offers for four years.

    CC had offers of seven years and 142M.  No one can defend nearly 40 million guaranteed for old Shane.

    nobody can defend a Loney/Gomez platoon at 1b and expect any production. Obviously you dont understand how this process works. or your just cheap. Its probably the latter.

    "Shane for 3 years and 13M a year is as almost incompetent as Crawbust and Ellspuff for 30M a year."

    It's not even in the same league of incompetence. I'm not thrilled about these signings but they are 3 year deals and that makes all the difference. They paid a bit more to get less years, I'm ok with that part. 

    If Ellsbury is traded for a good pitcher and Shane moves to center field this signing will look at least decent. 

    You're offering a report card on certain moves when in fact the totality of those moves is required before a grade can be given. I know patience is not your strong suit....

    AGon by the way was wildly overpaid, underperformed while he was here and was an entitled baby in the clubhouse. He was unable to get the Dodgers into the playoffs. If he'd been signed to value he'd still be here...

    I'm not sure why the original post is complaining about Ellsbury.

    It is OBVIOUS the sox are dumping Ellsbury at the first opportunity.

     

    That will be an incredibly stupid move - but that is what they are doing - dumpoing Ellsbury.

    Softy, 

    As usual you can see no one agrees with you !! Your points all fall on deaf ears because no one wants to hear your diatribes because we all know you have know knowledge of baseball. Please crawl back into your little Troll Hell and leave the rest of us to discuss baseball without having you post your silliness. 

    Hetch
