not a good contract. victorino can't hit lefties to save his life.

that looks like a disaster.

This seems like only a decent idea if they trade Ellsbury for a lot and stick Victorino in CF.

Victorino is very overrated. I've thought this for the longest time. Looks like a bad contract but we shall see how it plays out.

13 million per year for a below-average defender on the wrong side of thirty who posted a 91 OPS+ last season? Yikes. Boston's not exactly having the best off-season to date.

Righties. And given that most pitchers are righties, that's a really bad trait.

Boston spending money on FA's but still won't get them out of the cellar

I think they've gone so far downhill they would really need a Herculean effort just to contend again

Their time is done

On the plus side, I have it on good authority that Victorino does not eat fried chicken.

Sox will be looking to dump him by year 2

But there are alternatives. Are there any L&L in Boston?

Boston seems to be putting that money saved up from last year to good use....

LOL I love big market teams. Dump your bad contracts and then go out a couple of months later and sign different players to bad contracts.

Sources: #Indians’ offer to Victorino was 4 yrs, $44 million. Evidence of their flexibility. Victorino got $2M per yr more from #RedSox.

Good thing for the Indians that he tuned that down.

Does Victorino think he'll get more than 6 mil per after this contract expires?

Victorino is terrible. Have fun watching his weak, infield pop ups two or three times a game.

Keith Law said Victorino is a 4th OF and a platoon player. Terrible deal for the Sox.

At a minimum, you know the Sox scouted Victorino during the pre-blockbuster of 2012 period.

My question is: what the hell did they see in him?

.629 OPS and 29 XBH in almost 425 at bats against RHP.

Just an odd move.

Didn't improve there team just made headlines
