    It's not a very rigorous analogy you have going here.

    Itís not like anyone said Renfroe and/or Cordero are better than Betts. But I do find it interesting that both combine to make less than Jacoby Ellsbury is still making with the Yankees, especially considering Ellsbury hasnít played a game in nearly 4 years...

    Yes, the Ellsbury contract was not much better than our Pablo/Hanley/Rusney deals.

    Although the Yankees recouped some money through insurance.

    But then again, I'm not the one responding to it!
    I owe Bellhorn04 $100 (virtual), which I will pay off with two tix to a Seadogs game in 2021.

    I hate to see current or former RS players crash. That's why I always root(ed) for Betts, Boggs, Clemens, Beltre, JBJ, Benintendi ... now the list is too long to do more than allude to. But Ellsbury's career was especially painful to watch. One of my alltime favorite players when he was here.
