Papelbon's Poutine said:I love Gordon but this feels like a CC redux. $20M+/year for a LF who derives a lot of his value from defense to play in Fenway half the time...not sure that makes sense.
Does he really get $20m/per this winter though? Not like I can see KC going the Pablo Sandavol route there, and feeling enough resign pressure that it ends up pushing up his price tag (to those levels at least). Plus there is still Heyward/Upton/Cespedes out there looking to get paid, and that's before even factoring in the massive amount of money being spent league-wide on FA pitching.
Maybe i'm undervaluing him I guess....but given the year he had i just can't see it atm.
