I give him a chance but in Boston if you sign with us and you overpaid and dont Produce, we will eat you alive. It good for the players considering signing in Boston to take a slight paycut.
No Napoli means Swisher for 4 years for over $15M per IMO, and no Hamilton.
Napoli, Dempster, Gomes, Victorino.... no Hamilton, and maybe Ellsbury isn't dealt, and he plays out the year.
No matter what I can't see Hamilton coming for 4 for say 104.
Reading this makes no sense why there all over him.
1. He was knocked against the Yankees and thats a big thing!
2. He was knocked against the Angels.
I just dont get why there going after a pitcher who doesn't have it in the AL. There willing to go all out on him. I rather go all out on Sanchez or Jackson. Don't hate me on this but I see this will fail I have that feeling.
Jackson is a #3.5 starter going to get #1.5 SP money.
Dempster is a "good" clubhouse guy who is a #3.5 SP getting paid #2 SP money.
None of them is worth the dough they are going to make IMO.
I'd be willing to bet if you toss in Marcum to this mix, his price/performance over the next two years would rank him not worse than #2 among these 4.

I like the Dempster signing for one reason... He's a clubhouse guy. I think he could be a good teacher to some of our pitchers. We need a guy like that. Do I think he will be an ace?? No probably not. Do I think he will be an above average starter for us?? Absolutely.
