    Thank you!  That settles what the right move is for the Red Sox!!!!

    if you say no, the FO should obviously say YES!  With a BIG sample 2013 sample size to prove your bad calls on all things Red Sox, we all know what the Sox should do.

    Hell YES!

    I think that's gonna be a bit too rich for the sox's taste. If that price is a bit lower to about 110-120 mill with say 5 years guarenteed and 2 option years i think that's more of a reality.

    I don't understand why Tim Dierkes gets away with using himself as source.

    In response to LagunaJose's comment:

    My market guess is 5 yrs for $80 mil.  How about you?

    I suspect Jacoby Ellsbury will land a contract closer to Tim Dierkes' projection of seven years and $150 million, which barely exceeds the contract the Red Sox handed Carl Crawford three years ago.

    With the heavy influx of new television revenues, we should brace ourselves for some pricey contracts for the top free agents.

    Crawford, who signed with the Red Sox when he was a year younger than Ellsbury's current age, had been valued at 35.8 WAR* in 1,235 games while Ellsbury has been valued at 23.7 WAR in 715 games.

    If the actual "market value" approaches anywhere near 7 yr $150M we walk.  Of course we should walk.  If we're talking 6 yrs @ about $18.5, I'm all in.  That's value.  anything higher is insanity!  Mortgaging the future.

    Just because a guy only posts one line does not mean there is nothing to read between...
