I agree. Walt is slow playing the Red Sox.
The Winter meetings were not the right time to strike a deal for Ellsbury. It is better that Walt waits for the price to come down. I think there is a limited trade market for a 1 year rental of Ellsbury. There arent many contending teams that desperately need a CF. The Phillies and Nats were a fit until the Revere and Span deals. Now I'm not sure who the Reds are bidding against? The deal should be for Corcino and little else. That is a fair price.
