I hope John Henry and Ben Cherington remember that players on love you when they're playing before they try to sign any 30+ year old pitcher for seven years.
a) I wish you guys would cut it out and
b) I have tried to parse the above, but no luck.

Miguel Montero is supposedly on the block. Maybe we can reacquire Bowden and trade him for Montero.

Yasmany Tomas worked out at the Red Sox academy. Balls were punished over trees to all fields! #smellbaseball #Power

I worry that his contract would become an albatross, that that the sox get into trouble.

I appear to be healing, but the trauma of clicking on these threads and not being fed any genuine, unprovable but nonetheless juicy, rumors (or, for the British among us, rumours) is stressful, to say the very least!

All these song references. I mean, we've been here one time. We've been here two times.

Well, the NY Post today has tried to guess where the top 30 free agents will sign, and it is about as bad as you would expect.  They have a lot of free agents returning to their current teams, and both Lester and Scherzer signing with the Cubs for a combined $340 million (6 and 8 year deals), with Shields signing with us.  I think the most laughable one however is Stephen Drew for $7 million to the Yankees (please let this happen).....

I don't wanna know the reasons why free agents keep right on walking on down the line.
 
Lester's just hoping to find someone who can give him peace of mind.

One thing I think should know, I ain't gonna miss Lester if he goes elsewhere.
 
Every player that doesn't sign opens up a spot for another player, that you will worry about leaving four years from now when his contract expires.
 
Can't spend your whole baseball rooting life dwelling on what you had, and what you lost, and what you had, and what you lost.

Ya, and with the A's, he was down so long.

He's been tossed around enough. Play him down in the Fens and let him do his stuff.

One thing I've learned about being a fan: players only love you when they're playing for your team.
