When All Star caliber players make it to free agency, you WILL pay more than they are worth. Pretty simple. Scott Kazmir just got someone to pay him $22 million. 22. That is all you need to know about free agency.
This. Like I said when we signed Byrd, his salary is fair value. And for Ellsbury, he's coming off a 6 WAR season and he had a 9 WAR season two years ago. He's an injury concern but that's a high impact player when he's healthy.
