but I am hoping for that too
this is what dave cameron over at FG has to say on SV (at a 3 year/30mil contract)
Angel Pagan with a little more speed and a little more fame. They’re very similar players, though Victorino’s reliance on power as a part of his game scares me a little bit, as that seems like a thing that could go away pretty quickly for a little guy in his thirties. Still, at $10 million a year, Victorino would be a nice value for the first year and probably two, and the cost isn’t so high that the third year would be a sinkhole. Any team wanting Pagan that doesn’t get him should look Victorino’s direction.
I mean, I don't really hate this since its a short deal, but if they are really willing to give him 37 million... idk
why didn't they even look at melky? he signed for 2/16 and fits exactly what the sox appear to be looking for:
can play CF/RF
I know he had the whole steroid issue, but I would much rather have them take a shot on him for 2/16 than on shane for 3/38
