to Mike Lowell according to the boston Gloebe. heaven forbid. They offered Mariano $45 million for three years, and they tied Posada up until he's forty for some ungodly sum. Those two have been among the best players in the game in recent years, but surely they are on the downhill slide. Not what I'd call judicious and certainly not what the Red Sox would do. Think of the young talent that kind of money would have tied up.
And Beckett didn't get the Cy Young, which in light of the playoffs is a miscarriage of justice. Not that Sabathia wasn't deserving, but if they voted now it would not turn out the same.
