    This is EXACTLY what the Cubs compensation should be for Theo....

    Forget the draft picks or some marginal major / minor league players. The Red Sox should tell the Cubs they can sign Theo and the compensation is that the Cubs HAVE TO TAKE JOHN LACKEY AND CARL CRAWFORD with him! That gives Theo two of "his guys" to be cornerstones (haha) for the Cubs, and frees up about 37M dollars a year for the Sox. Dont laugh, the Cubs are also free spenders and may just jump at this!

    Pie in the Sky notion, the Cubs would never do this. And I can totally see that tounge in your cheek.

    Agree with you about Crawford.  He just had a bad year.  I predict that he will have a good year next season and Red Sox fans will be happy that he is a member of the Red Sox.  At least I will remain optimistic about Carl until next season.  I was very happy when the Red Sox signed him and still believe he was a good addition to this team.

    I think Crawford will bounce back, but he'll never live up to that contract, and some people won't ever let him forget it.

    Crawford is a high paid professional baseball player and there was no excuse for his lousy play.  guys getting paid like him aren't given a free pass.  He was signed to produce and he didn't.

    If the Cubs are stupid enough to want Theo maybe there is hope they would take some of his horrific acquisitions.

    I agree, but it wasn't his fault that Theo blew the second best contract offer out of the water.  Craw didn't have to take the dosh, but ask yourself if you'd leave 35 mil on the table to play elsewhere. 

    Look, I agree that he has to produce and the buck stops with him. But the point is that even if he produced at or above his career best numbers he will still be overpaid.  Will some unreasonale fans let him off the hook if he hits .290, 18 home runs and steals 35 bases?  Likely no, they'll look at the contract and exopect the best LF in the game, an excpectation set by the contact.

    Next year we will see what Crawford can do.   The Sox need him to play like he did on the Rays, end of story.  Giving up on him would be a mistake.

    the real compensation we should get is Jeff samardzija the hard throwing young reliever, if they truely want theo a good young middle reliver should not be to much to ask and if things don't work out Samardzija could always take ochocino's spot with the pats. but seriously I think a great target for compensation

    OK if this is pie in the sky lets say Theo has to take Lackey and the last year of Dice K with him saving us 25M in one year.
