    Because you care too much about saving money for John Henry.

    I like to keep track of payroll numbers but I don't bitch about the front office decisions. Big difference.

    Kevin Pillar has been worth $94.6 million. this is $13.6 million less then JBj. so if JBj is making $11 million this season then pillar should be paying John Henry $2.6 million to play for the Red Sox this season. or not.

    I do. But only when they involve really big contracts or medium sized ones for oft-injured SPs...

    This doesn't make any sense.

    Should they have? Couldn't they have non tendered him and signed him for 2/12? Wouldn't that have saved them money. I'm sure if they did that there'd be a lot of people high fiving on here.

    Nearly....the 'or not' needs to be underneath all the rest of the text. For added smugness.

    Or not.

    Yes, but only if no one else wanted him for more. Once they non-tender him, he is a free agent.

    Now they could have offered him 2 yrs / $12mill instead of tendering him arbitration, But no way was Bradley's agent ever going to advise him to accept that...
