How long until Red Sox fans hate Victorino?
lol, i dont like this for the sox
SO SO glad Wren didn't sign him in Atlanta.
how many established free agents are going to sign what people will call good contracts? not that many. this happens all the time, get used to it.
he is only 1 year removed from .279/.355/.491/.847

Money has never been an issue, which is why you are seeing that Boston is overpaying on short-term contracts, because it can afford to do so instead of over-extending themselves in terms of years.
And yeah, CC was an elite talent but he wasn't a good fit for the Sox. His value was in speed and D, and in Fenway the Monster prevents him from taking advantage of his speed. Given the lesser OBP numbers he wasn't a good leadoff option, and the lack of power numbers meant he wasn't a middle of the order guy either.
Wasn't a good fit at all.
Vic Mackey: You better figure out how much you hate me. And how you're going to deal with that. 'Cause I'm not going anywhere.
This sums up every sports interview, ever.
If they just gave him 3 years, why not up the money and top the Rangers on a 4 year deal for Hamilton? They have money, whats an extra year on for a game changing player? If the 4 years is true in what Hamilton is going to get, thats a deal.
Sox are setting up another huge trade with the Dodgers
I'm really not understanding Bostons off season at all, dating back to august. Trade a superstar 1b in agon, a quality LF in crawford, and quality SP in Beckett... then go this off season and overpay on gomes and victorino and sign napoli.. has me confused but oh well, have fun boston.
