a comparison of the three starters).
Would it be worth dealing Bailey or Leake, given that 1) Ellsbury is only under team control for one more year and 2) Ellsbury has a considerable injury history? Seems like a high-risk, high-reward move.
Bailey no. Leake is a non-starter in that conversation.
That said, I'd love to hear what Bailey wants for an extension. Same with Latos. Just to know where things stand.
