Re: Jacoby Ellsbury?
Boston is going to get............nothing for Ellsbury with those demands.
I thought Corcino/Stubbs for Ellsbury was fair. Simply because they were getting a top 3 Reds prospect, not to mention starting pitcher, and a former #1 pick CFer that is in the doghouse in Stubbs. But both are under control for awhile and still cheap.
And they expect the Reds to take on 1-year of Ellsbury and give them Latos or Bailey?????? That's insane.
If another team gives that much up, then the market really is out of whack.
Every couple or so years, the baseball market gets way out of whack and alot of dumb contracts are handed out.
