The 5yr/$95 mil offer to Sandoval is too much, but it's not ridiculous. It's a contract I would be okay with, provided that his signing does not keep us from getting Lester and a #2 pitcher.

In response to moonslav59's comment: From what I understand, going over the luxury limit by just $1 means losing millions in revenue sharing. Sox4ever I'm pretty sure this is true, but I'm also pretty more »

Think of fangraphs and sabermetrics as a form of differentiation....
Fangraphs is what I think of as baseball porn.

In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment: Thanks Zac. Good illustration of how overrated the running game is, as evidenced by Boston's 4 ALCS appearances and 3 championships in that stretch. You shouldn't more »

In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment: What's just about impossible to project is the risk factor. Let's assume that Stanton's regression is no worse than normal. It's the injury risk that throws all t more »

In response to craze4sox's comment: Exactly Kimmi, My guess is and I could be wrong is at some point the Marlins will be looking to dump his contract in order to survive. 13 years/325mil is an insane more »

Stanton may age better than other players. His contract may be better than some of the other long term deals handed out. Regardless, a 13 year deal is INSANE. It doesn't matter how good the player more »

Moves for certain players are not made in a vacuum. It's not about acquiring the best 3B, it's about assembling the best overall team. If signing someone like Sandoval to a huge contract means not b more »

Personally, I think Lester will be back with the Sox. Of all the free agents to spend the big money on, Lester makes the most sense. Pitching is our greatest need, and Lester has proven that he can more »
