    Seriously doubt they offered him a contract for 6 years after they were burned badly by Lackey. No way !!!

    It is not going to happen!!!  Boston may be just driving the price up on someone. Sound like the Yankees may be the one getting him!!

    According to MLBTraderumors.com the Sox are very much still in on Wilson along with Texas, California, Florida, Washington and a mystery team. No mention of the Yankees as one of the teams.

    Remember most of the time the mystery team win the sweepstake.  And most of the time the Phillies, Yankees, Rangers, etc were a mystery team over these years!!

    David Cone must still be around, he was always a good short-term rental.

    If there's a mystery team with no mention of NYY, you know the mystery team is NYY. I wouldn't mind him, but I think Buerhle might be a better deal. Less money, less risk. Wilson's PS performance does scare me though.

    I agree with you on Buerhle. I really hope that we don't sign Wilson. The Yankees can have him.

    The whole thing stinks as to the Yankees telling the agent they were not going to talk to him. Do not trust the Yankees, alla Mark Teixeira and no chin Cashman. The guy is a born liar.

    I don't want him, if Wilson is so good why don'tt the ranger's re-sign him, they the resources.  The ranger's didn't hesitate in offering Cliff Lee a ton of money one year ago.  I say pass on wilson.

    The price and years are all that matters here. He wants to play for Boston, so if that puts him in range, then why not? It's not like we haven't been crippled by pitching. We may wind up needing all the help we can get.

    Dont you know the history of this guy??

    Had a Tommy John Surgery.  He is 31 years old.  He just began to go on the rise as a starter only two years ago.  

    And still you wanted him for six years??

    No Thanks!!

    Not a good idea. Wilson wants too much money and he is a shaky proposition. Pass.

    Agreed. The money can be better spent elsewhere.

    MLB is reporting that the Angels are the frontrunners in the chase for CJ.  See MLB site today.

    I think the fact that the Yanks declined to even meet with this guy when his agent called them is enough to make me want to stay away from him.  Another overpaid/long term pitcher is not what the Sox need at this point
