    abso about the studs signing for 5/6...thats why there were ranked as the top free agents....drew? not in anyones top list of anything and he is now making close 8 figures...

     

    doesnt seem like a vote of confidence to iggy however...or pedro C....agreed?

    Agreed. Pedro C is a backup MLer at best. Iglesias needs to learn how to hit. IMO neither of those guys deserves a vote of confidence at this point.

    Apparently, you didn't see any of his ABs in September. He scorched the ball several times but right at people. He only has 89 PAs at the Major level and why people think that is an adequate amount to judge his offensive ability is just ludicrous. He already has better plate discipline than some of the veterans and he has excellent hitting fundamentals. Playing a full season as the everyday SS would result in a .260 BA or better, IMO.

    .240 would be a major achievement for Iggy.

    I don't disagree with you necessarily. Jose has quick hands and quite possibly a good eye. So he'll most likely figure it out eventually. However, the fact is that he was just starting to figure it out in Pawtucket when he was forced into service with the big club. He's still very young and I don't think another year in Pawtucket would hurt him any. And it might not even be a full year. If he's playing like Middlebrooks was last year, it's pretty easy to trade a guy who's on a one year deal.

    Truly amazing complain about long term high salaries yet use that as a reason to say they could have had Sanchez.

    Drew at 9 mil is better than BJ Upton at 15 for 5 yrs 75 mil

    What is wrong with Iggy, Ciracio, Pedroia, Middlebrooks and Drew manning 2nd. short and 3rd? At 30 Pedroia is the oldest. 

    Right now the RS have a competitive team and still have every draft pick and minor leaguer. They have 4 SP that has and still can win 15 games each.

    The RP is stronger and if they can be better than 30 losses last year inluding in that the 20+ BS it should be a good year.

    Then next year some of the kids just maybe have proved them selves in AA and AAA.

    How were his stats last year? .623 OPS? Is that worth $9.5M? I guess to the Red Sox. The Red Sox were the only team to offer the injured Napoli 3 years, they offered $8M more to Victorino, and after they made an offer to Dempster that he rejected, they came back and upped it. Good negotiations.

    I didn't have a big problem with the previous signings, but I don't like the Drew deal.  It's not about the money, although I don't see how he earned a raise with the year he had last year.  I still think the pitching needs help and this signing actually hurts the pitching.  Even if Iglesias can't hit he would have helped the pitching tremendously.  Obviously the sox did not pay Drew $9.5M to be a backup.

    If you're going to constantly whine like a two year old, try to do a little homework to back up your concerns.  Making stuff up because you have no clue at all just makes you sound like an idiot.

    The normal answer. Use what works for your theory. What about an increase in ave as the year went on? What about the previous years outputs? What about the fact that the As tradEd for him for the end of year run?
