    The Sox have not signed Hamilton or anyone else (aside from Ortiz) with an obvious ability to approximate his production. Instead of piling a single $125 million bet on Hamilton, the team has outspent his deal by about 20 percent in order to add a total of seven free agents thus far this offseason:

    Mike Napoli: 3 years, $39 million
    Shane Victorino, 3 years, $39 million
    Ryan Dempster: 2 years, $26.5 million
    David Ortiz: 2 years, $26 million
    Jonny Gomes: 2 years, $10 million
    David Ross: 2 years, $6.2 million
    Koji Uehara: 1 year, $4.25 million

    Total: $150.95 million

    That's kind of misleading seeing as the numbers per year break down to 64.85 million 60.6 million 26 million. It's not like they weren't in on Hamilton they just wouldn't go past 3 years.

    nvm I see it was more of an objective look at the off-season.

    I have no problem not making this long term deal that we would regret eventually.
