    Of course the Sox wouldn't wait until Wed to add a starter, they need 2 top of the rotation starters.  They can wait until Wed for Lester, however.

    One tweeter says it's a no, another says it's likely.  Until Lester says it one way or another these guys mean nothing.

    It was a joke several had reported that he'd be in the present range if he hit free agency.  No way is half of what you are worth a real offer.

    It's certainly okay to noncounter a seriously low first offer. The current bid is for twice as much as that offer.   You'd counter a offer that was 50% of what your house is worth? Not me.

    The work is not even way half done.  Maybe wait until they've assembled the team.  Right now they need pitching and hav a lot of pieces that are tradeable and more money to spend.   Not liking the per more »

    Heyman posted that both Ramirez and Sandoval have OPSs well above .900 in the playoffs.  Hanley might be frustrating at times but they are going to be way better than Crawford.
