And I'll feel better knowing that he's not going to make the Phillies pay for refusing to overpay him.

He became incredibly overrated in 2010. The main value he had in Philly was that he was a right handed bat. He is atrocious with runners in scoring position.

Agreed on all counts. Boras must have some spells over GMs (and owners, in Hank Steinbrenner's case).

And really he's just replacing Adam Dunn, so talent-wise they basically broke even.

I think they will also offer big money for Lee. They keep saying it's a Rangers/Yankees race, but somehow I think they'll also try to get him.

They could become a good team once Bryce Harper makes it and if Strasburg recovers well. Too many pieces missing at this point, though.

Maybe we all spoke too soon, he hasn't signed the contract yet.

Anyway I'd prefer the instant gratification getting Gonzo now rather than wait a year. Boston finished third in the AL East last season and I don't think they want that happening again. And if he did go to free agency Boston runs the risk of a bidding war with a team like the Cubs.

I don't know. If they wrangle in Pena, their offense will have a formidable middle of the order once Harper's ready. I think the East is gonna be a nice race in the NL next season. It'll be fun to see how it all unfolds.

I can't believe that the Nationals are really going to offer 7 years for Cliff Lee.

Are the Nats trying to assemble from pieces of the 2009 Phillies? We should tell them about Eric Bruntlett.

Baseball offseason in the era of twitter is utterly infuriating. Now there are reports that the Nats are not in on Lee at all.

Same shit during NBA free agency this summer. I'm avoiding all the Twitter shit and just checking Lone Star Ball every now and then. Lord knows I won't get reliable Clifford/Greinke info consolidated anywhere else.

Can't see this happening at all when Carl Crawford is four years younger and unsigned.
