    I suspected they knew Ellsbury was leaving so they got their replacement when he was available rather than waiting..

    They were worried about Ells leaving 3+ years later?
    If it walks like collusion and talks like collusion, it's collusion.

    I hated the signing from day one.

    CC had bad splits and 7 years was 3-4 years too long. (I remember calling him a "glorified platoon player" on that other blog.)

    Now, I never expected him to be THAT bad.

    Never trust the "sign that guy because he's a Red Sox killer" guys.

    That, too.

    Had we not traded CC, we might be looking at that signing as the worst ever.
