Want the World Series lineup card from the Red Sox dugout from Game 6?

What's going to be the final bid? I'm guessing $13,800.

This isn't big enough to start an off-season thread, but our Sox have signed AJ Pierzynski

Welp, so long Salty and your glorious jew-fro:

I guess they have some catcher named Christian Vasquez on-deck in the minors, so AJ is a placeholder for a year. I look forward to him coming up to the big club and acting like I've heard of him all along.

I have no feeling whatsoever about Ellsbury leaving. Sox fans have known he was gone for a couple years now, so this is no surprise. The real surprise was that he rooked the Yankees into giving him seven years and an option for an eighth. Any time you can pay $20 million a year to a dude who's hit more than 9 HRs in a season once, well, you know...

I did hear an interesting bit about Boras getting Ellsbury to the Yankees as an eff you to Cano for leaving him and signing Jay-Z.

The Sox have Yoke's boy JBJ ready to go this year, and will likely sign someone else to platoon with him in center until he's fully ready. Like Prez said, Ellsbury did his job and was part of two titles. Thanks for your time, enjoy the Bronx. At least until they get fed up and trade you to Seattle in year three.

Matching this offer would have been lunacy. I do think the Yankees overpaid. I don't blame the Sox for letting him walk, and I don't blame Ellsbury for cashing in. I would've given him a standing O if he was coming back to Fenway for his first game with the Mariners. But now he's with the enemy and any Ellsbury stuff in my house is getting tossed. Tank Jr and I were at the game where Ellsbury stole home against the Yankees, and I got him one of those Steiner Sports plaques with a pic of Ellsbury stealing home for Christmas that year. That plaque came off the wall last night.

Where else was Ellsbury going to go? No other team would have paid him that money. If the Dodgers and Angels didn't have their outfields set, maybe those two would have been potential landing spots.

I heard Seattle and Texas. I never discounted the Dodgers either, because they're genuinely retarded.

Seattle and Texas were probably Boras plants. Guy can create a bidding market when one does not exist.

Ellsbury is from Oregon, was looking for the most money, and the Ms have money to spend. I think they were a serious destination.

I thought the Yankees wouldn't pay that kind of money. If the market was 5 yrs $90M then I could definitely see Seattle in play. At the price he got the Yankees were definitely the only market, but I thought the market for a 7 year Jacoby deal would be zero. I don't think anyone else would offer even 6/$120M, but Boras must've at least convinced the Yanks that was on the table somewhere, otherwise the Yanks would've come down a year.

A lot of the aftermath I'm reading is focusing on the marketability of Ellsbury as a reason they went so overboard. Apparently not a lot of people watch the YES! Network or want to pony up $2500 for front row seats to watch Eduardo Nunez and Lyle Overbay. Just a perfect storm to get Ells his money and the Yankees someone to put asses in seats.
