Whoa! So much for my prediction. Bring on Swanson?
This is what I get for staying up past my bedtime.
If I'm not mistaken, this means that @TimScribble gets a lifetime membership from @AlNipper49 for beating soxhop?

Yah. Also the cora connection.You have to think the Red Sox will pivot to Carlos Correa, who is extremely close with Alex Cora.
He is a Boras client, he wasn’t gonna test FA?Crap. Can certainly see why the Sox didn’t want to go 11 years. That’s ridiculous for a 31 yo. But I agree with others. Hard not to think that the Sox got to a point this week that would have sealed the deal before X opted out. Failure to foresee where this market would go.
Why aren't they going to play 11 years? When has a player ever retired leaving that much money on the table?As I said in the Trea Turner thread, neither player is going to play 11 years. This is a lifetime contract with the years serving to depress the real AAV. It's the total dollars (and NPV) that are most relevant, not years.
At this point I''d put us at even odds with the Padres to sign Devers long-term.I am glad the Red Sox passed. More money for Devers?
Josh Donaldson only has one season left in The BidetAt this point I''d put us at even odds with the Padres to sign Devers long-term.
Right. Maybe like two years ago you buy out his last two years plus add 5 to 7 and you get a discount but once he was close to free agency this is what Boras does. He gets you 11/280. That’s why you sign with him.He is a Boras client, he wasn’t gonna test FA?
Parcel it out however you like, but it's still $280M.11 years seems crazy, but that’s not a terrible AAV.
