    None of the above....because none of them have ever resulted in us not being able to field a championship club...see Arod with Texas

    I'm not going to be hypocritical about this ... the only one of those that I hated AT THE TIME was Jenks. No clue why Theo brought him in.

    As for the others, hindsight is 20-20 ... though I still think Crawford will work out.

    So far this is very close...between Cameron and Jenks.  You got nothing out of either of them.  Drew had a poor last 18 months...but was at least decent before that.  Same for Dice k.  Crawford and Lackey have not been heros for sure, and no one doubts they are overpaid up to this point, but a bad signing...no.

    Cameron got hurt. Lackey continues to be what he always has been. Jenks is a bust. Dice K has resulted in other promotional revenues coming to the Red Sox, and he has been fair on the field. Crawford has recently shown signs of life. But... I will never, never, NEVER, figure out why Julio Lugo was signed for the money he got.

    I have to go with Daisuke, because he was hyped as a superstar and an ace. He was young and supposed to be here a while.

    School's far from out on Crawford and Lackey just yet.

    Jenks at $6 million a year is chump change in major league baseball for large market teams. So no big deal.

    I dislike J.D.Drew but at least he helped us win in 2007, he played a small part and fell apart in 2008, but at least we got something out of him.

    Cameron was a fill in, he didn't fill in very well. If he had he would easily have been worth the $7.75 million a year.

    Lugo, Jenks, Cameron, Drew, Dice and Lackey were the worst.  Lackey and Dice were the very worst and although Carl may be overpaid he will be fine.

    Tough call but I'd go w/ Lackey followed closely by Crawford.  Although IMO Crawford has more potential upside than Lackey.
