Doesn't he still have an arbitration year left? You have a while to decide. Hell, you may be even able to sign him to a 3 year, 40 million deal, with some 15 mil club options that become vested if he stays healthy. Because if he's healthy, he's a player

You're right.

You're right.


You guys do realize that he's played in 227 out of a possible 455 games the past 3 seasons right? With Boras representing him there's 0.1% chance he signs for 3/40. Again, I think Boras leads out with Crawford $/years to start negotiations. He's a very good player when he's healthy, that just hasn't been the case the last few years. He would really scare me to sign long term.

I dont see Ellsbury in the same light as Damon. Damon would die for his team, as evidenced in the 2003 playoffs. I dont get anything close to that vibe from Ellsbury, and I'm not calling him a pansy his injuries have been legit. I just dont see Ellsbury as the type of guy that really gives that much of a shit whether his team is winning or not, and that is THE problem with this team over the last few seasons. Ellsbury is a good player that I would take back at a reasonable rate, but I would never give him a 5,6, or 7 year deal with over 100million. Damon signed with the Yankees on a contract that was reasonable and that the Red Sox easily could have afforded, Theo just didnt want Damon, he tried to trade him multiple times before he left as a FA.

Kalish over Reddick appears to be a fantastic job of player evaluation by Ben and the boys.

Is it bad that I'm rooting for them to push this streak further?

I find myself lying to people about what I watched the night before and pretending I dont still watch every one of these awful, embarrassing games.

I got a sick pine green Astros hat in Houston that I've been rocking more lately. I want to pick up the Jays hat and the new O's hat with the white front.

I don't think I could go within the division.

As I've said before...get rid of Fenway Park. It is too old. The city needs a modern facility in Boston proper. If we start now, it might be built by 2030.
