I think both these players could be gotten for one or two years deals with very little money spent on either. The ideal of Bourn, would mean that Ellsbury could be traded for another position. Bourn could be had for maybe a 2 yr or 3 yr deal at worst perhaps. Someone like him I can't see asking for more then 10 mill or so. With Peavy, I could see a one year deal at 10-12 mill a year. I doubt he would sign on for two years at that rate.
I think both players would be great assests to this team. Peavy may not be a world beater but he is consistent and with a team behind that can hit, you might be able to pencil him in for 12 plus wins. Not a bad 3rd starter and better then what Lackey or Doubront bring to the table.
Bourn imo, is another nice player. Good leadoff player with speed, that could easily steal 40 plus times and with a good hittign team like the Red Sox, could easily see his numbers sky rocket. I think management has to look at players like these two until our young players are ready to move up.
For the record, I think signing Grenike, Hamilton and Swisher would be a waste of money. I also would like to see Lavranway given a shot at 1b. Worth a shot.
