    Seems okay to me. Keeps him in place, but isn't so prohibitive that he couldn't be moved in a few years if he declines some.

    I still can't believe he actually won the MVP. But almost 7 million a year isn't that awful. That would buy you a Harang, but couldn't get you Griffey, Cordero or Dunn.

    ROY, World Series Champion, All Star, Gold Glove, Silver Slugger, AL MVP, and a $40+M contract in his first two major league seasons, at 25 years old. Just 2 years ago, Keith Law was cracking jokes with a couple of idiot talk radio hosts about how he was never going to be able to hit a ball out of the IF.

    Keith Law is an idiot.

    Great move by the Red Sox, IMO.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
