True true. But let's be honest... there's just no conceivable way the Reds can retain Ellsbury past this season. If Vic can get 40 million, Ellsbury's going to land an insane amount. I'd entertain Leake and some young arms, but Bailey would be a mistake, especially considering our ability to extend him.
