WS bound, son.
Where would we play Abreu? I think he's a 1B
Resign pence and Gaudin, and with the addition of Tanaka, this team could be in the chase for a WC.
I would want Ellsburry too but we WISELY spent that money on Pagan.
lol Ellsbury is going to cost 3 times as much as Pagan did. Its not like we picked one over the other.
I think Choo would be a much better signing to leadoff. Elite OB% for a fraction of Ellsbury's price.
That would be $30M per year, which would make Ellsbury the highest paid player in the game, and of course nobody is going to do that. He's $9M right now and someone might offer $16M per for 5 years ($80M), but I can't see any more than that for JE. I like Choo, but he really is useless against LHP and his defense is questionable...but if the deal was reasonable in length, it would be a great investment. Just not sure we can pay big dollars/long-term money to both corner OFers and still put together a great starting pitching staff (which is what this team is built on).
