    Ervin Santana and Ricky Nolasco.

    Santana is reportedly looking for $100mill over 5 years.  Nolasco wants $80mill over 5 years.

     

    Suddenly Jake Peavy ($14.5mill) and Ryan Dempster ($13mill) don't look so bad...

    Nolasco and Santana also pitched in great pitchers parks. Dempster did not.

    Dempster also gave the Sox pretty much what they were hoping for this year.  He made 29 starts, during which the Sox went 17 & 12 & he provided veteran leadership to a rotation that could have definitely used it after the last couple of years.  I'm not sure what people were expecting out of the guy, but you could do a lot worse at the back end of the rotation.  His versatility being able to start or relieve, adds some value as well, & if the Sox decide to move him, they'll find some takers.

    Yeah, We look pretty smart if the other guys hit their numbers, but I'm thinking Santan is closer to $42-45M/3 and Nolasco closer to $33-36M/3.

    Baseball is awash in money with new television revenues, so brace yourself for pricey contracts to the top free agents this offseason.

    Re: Ervin Santana and Ricky Nolasco.

    Dempster brought a lot more to the table than wins and innings pitched.

    In addition most also realized he was pitching with some kind of ailment most of the season.

    With a 4 + Era he still kept the team in most of his games. He appeared to be well liked as a teammate.

    I do like Santana but he's not a head of the rotation guy that will move Lester from that spot in addition Nolasco wasn't inspiring enough to spend $50 M when we have several Minor League pitchers ready to assume a 3,4, or 5 spot in the rotation now.
