I'm a Red Sox fan, and even I find your thinking to be a product of the paranoid school.

Last year their stated goal was to work to get under the cap/threshold and they spent more than any team in history has spent on their roster.
Also, they get salary relief for one year for A-Rod and their signings are, all of them, multi-year deals. I'm not sure how not paying A-Rod in 2014 influences what they're paying Tanaka, Ellsbury, et. al. in 2017.
Did MLB tell them not to re-sign Cano too?
To address the last bit of your post, they didn't "get out" of the contract - they're going to resume paying him in 2015 (along with Mcann, Ellsbury, Tanaka & Beltran - the guys they went 'crazy' on).
Sorry, but there's more paranoia and conspiracy thinking than sense in your statements.
