I was ridiculed for saying this same thing during ST.
You werent ridiculed Moon. Some just didnt agree with extending him because we wanted to see if he could put it all together first. He has proved that so far this year. I agree with Kimmi and have said myself, that I think if Boston wanted him here, Salty would leave a couple Mil on the table to stay here since Boston gave him the chance and had the patience with him that neither Atlanta nor Texas did.
I always said Salty needed to turn the corner this season to have any chance of staying in Boston. This couldn't have come at a better time in his career so so if it continues, by all means make him an offer and see what happens. If he's anything like Pede, Lowell and others he may take less to stay in Boston and I know hes well liked by his mates.
You can also bet rivals, like Tampa and the Yankees will be out to steal Salty if he continues to do well.
