    All I have to say is at least the Patriots never put a players career in jeopardy.

    Let the age of Tripgate begin!

    RM57, No, not saying they should overpay Bay. If they wanted to sign Bay to a two year contract worth about 30-35 million, I'd be fine with that. Anything more is just too much for a player of Bay's c more »

    Mujo, perhaps you need to fix your monitor. I said Drew has an average arm and average defense. Not below on either of them. He averages 18 HRs per year, not 20. And that is skewed heavily by his two more »

    Stumpy82, that's your opinion if you think Drew is better than Bay. I don't concur. You're right though. If the Red Sox were paying him 8 million, I'd be happier with him. His production and injury hi more »

    Peter, stop using last year as a benchmark. Just as you say you can't compare Bay and Teixeira, you cannot compare 2009 to 2010. Fact is, 1-9, the Yankees are a far superior team. Pitching and defense more »

    Dfwelch, I not once said Gonzalez's season was a fluke. I said that you are depending on a guy who plays more games than not in pitcher's ballparks. What if he does hit a slump? What if his OBP, avera more »

    And if Gonzalez has a terrible season, his stock drops, questions as to his consistency arises, his value -in-return plummets and San Diego get not half what they could get now. To say there is no poi more »

    I'm actually getting tired of reading Peter Abraham's "holier than thou," "I'm right, you're wrong" attitude in all things Red Sox. Right now, the chances of signing Bay are slim to none unless they c more »

    What a lot of people do not understand about the Teixeira deal is that the Red Sox did NOT deem another 10-12 million too expensive for Teixeira, it's that they bawked at the idea of offering Teixeira more »

    Cutmesomeslackjack, you're on Bonser for having the name Boof? If you're going to do that then you need to really be on Chad Johnson for legally changing his name to Chad Ochocinco... more »

    I actually like this depth pickup. Bonser is a good #5 option to split woth Wakefield. I'm willing to bet the Sox get Ben Sheets too. more »

    Peter, you're living in fantasy land if you think what you said is what the Sox NEED... Fact of the matter is the Red Sox need not only rotation depth and bullpen depth (I'd be looking at Mike Gonzale more »

    There is no doubt Kessel has talent. But he is a one way player, and he showed exactly why the B's were right in disregarding him. Now, if those three picks turn into anything at all, it doesn't matte more »

    Unfortunately, Rask is going to make that contract extention to Thomas look really bad. I'm glad Rask signed a cap friendly extention for a couple seasons, though. The B's will trade Thomas in a coupl more »

    I'm indifferent about Scutaro. Losing two relievers to Atlanta, though? I think the Sox need to counter by signing Mike Gonzalez and Rafael Soriano, but that may be me. more »

    Stop saying Bay is just testing the market. He's not. He's being greedy. He knows the Yankees will offer him a bigger contract and he's driving his price up. Sox should offer him no more contracts and more »

    I like Mayo and the way he responded, but at the same time, Tedy is 100% right. You do not go for it on 4th and 2 from your own 28 yard line with the game on the line and one of the most polific offen more »

    Dandw2, while you are correct about it being more than just payroll to run a team, the point is that the money that Boras is referring to is supposed to be spent on payroll each season. The revenue sh more »

    Chances of Pujols picking up his 2011 option are slim to none. He's going to be the richest player in the MLB and WILL get ~35 million per season on a long term status. Unlike Rodriguez, Pujols deserv more »

    Daniel Bard has never started a game in his career. Making him a starter is totally pointless. You want a good example of how bad it is? Look no further than Joba Chamberlain. Had Chamberlain stayed i more »

    Tell me why you wouldn't go after Brandon Webb if Arizona doesn't pick up his option? Rehab or not, Webb was, and probably still is, a proven ace in his prime. He's not a washed up or old player like more »
