They couldn't come to agreements before because teams like the Yankees knew that August 1st deadline wasn't important because the salary of the player made them a virtual certainty to clear waivers and 2) knew they would make the playoffs w/o them so getting them at the deadline wasnt urgent. Similar things happen every year. Use some of that "50" year experience.

Maybe we should be more like the Yankees and resign our over the hill players to absurd contracts. I mean seriously, what team wouldn't want to be paying a 38 yr old Alex Rodriguez and a 39 year old Jeter 45 million combined in 2013? Thats just good solid business folks.

Maybe the Sox should be like the Yankees and sign all their over the hill players to monster contracts....on second thought, maybe not.

you forgot avg, defense and a general domination of all facets of the game for the past 10 years. lol. I'm sorry after that comment I can't discuss this w/you anymore. I know gardner is a solid player, good defense, fast and everything but there is no chance in hell that anyone w/a brain could possibly try to say gardner is even close to the same caliber of player crawford is.

If you listen to the players talk about him or have ever met the kid you would know that its not bs. The kid just has that type of personality, its not hard to see. Also, while Cano can often make the highlight play most stats have him as an avg defender. Earlier in his career he was a plus defender but something (added bulk possibly) put him at a zero for runs saved above the avg 2nd basemen. Pedroia in 75 games was 11 runs above. Please dont tell me about the gold glove, that thing has been a joke for years.

However if you want to see a one sided matchup look no farther than Crawford vs Gardner.

Nevermind the fact that Pedroia plays great D and is widely known to be a great teammate, keeping the clubhouse loose and fun.

.823 OPS (ROY) .869 (MVP) .819, .860 (last year)-Pedroia. .841 .715 .871 .914- Cano. Looks to me like Pedroia avg out to pretty much the same numbers as Cano although Cano is older and has the luxury of having played 2 more full seasons as the major league level. Look into stats before you try to downplay a player. It was just 2 seasons ago that Cano ended the year w/a .305 OBP.

Scutaro and Lowrie can both hit as well if not better than old man Jeter at this point in his career as well. I know its hard to accept hes losing it but the stats dont lie. Scutaro actually outhit him last year. Higher OPS, avg, HRs all despite being hurt a majority of the year. The only place I see there being something close to a tie this year is 2nd (although I'd give Cano the slight edge if we're doing this purely on hitting) and CF where Ellsbury can be expected to bat for a much higher avg and 3x as many steals whereas granderson will hit for about double the HRS.

In what world do you give them a tie at first base? Texeira .256 avg, .846 OPS 33 hrs 108 rbis. On a lineup where he consistently had people on base for him and protection in the lineup. Gonzalez. .298 avg .904 OPS 31 hrs 101 rbis. In PETCO PARK! On the PADRES! lol. Its not even close.
Posted Sunday March 20, 2011, About: Red Sox closer on Rangers' radar?
If the Red Sox had offered 15/per yr over 3 yrs then ya, he would've taken that multiyear contract because it set a new salary standard for closers but he wasn't going to sign a deal that took away years from his free agency which is obviously a deal breaker seeing the whole idea of signing a young arbitration eligible player is to buy out some of their free agent years. Essentially saying we'll give you more money now if you take away a year or two of entering free agency and trying to get a mega contract.
Posted Sunday March 20, 2011, About: Red Sox closer on Rangers' radar?
Atro, you my friend are a moron. It has been well documented that Papelbon wanted 1 yr deals so he could reach free agency and help set the salary ceiling for closers. Doesn't look like its going to happen but that was in fact his choice. So ya, he did in fact say a player wanted a 1 yr deal. It happens. You've been served.
Posted Tuesday March 15, 2011, About: Yankees keep calling M's about Hernandez
Lol wait wait wait. did you just compare the calls about Felix Hernandez, Cy young winner, to some minor league catchers one of which isnt even projected to make it to the majors for THREE YEARS. Sorry buddy but that analogy just doesnt fly...and all of us are now more stupid for having heard it. Thanks a lot.
