  • Crisp signs 3 year extension

    First Ortiz now Crisp. Coco signed a 3 year deal with option for 2010.
    Good to see Crisp will be staying around for awhile.

    Sorry to be the typical pessimist, but didn't the Sox sign someone else to a 3-year extension a few months back? Someone who is now pitching (and hitting) for the Reds? I hope Coco will be around for a while, but don't hold your breath on the term of the contract. Not yet, at least.

      Different situation, IMO. Starting pitching was at a surplus (if that can ever be true), and the same can't be true with our outfielders.

        That and also Crisp could end up being a great player and is only 26. Wicked fast, plays good defense and will probably hit a high average. Arroyo on the other hand was not really a great player (around a 4.00 era) and a bit older(not by much though) Crisp could become one of the top outfielders in the league while Arroyo was just a number 7 starter.

          I'm just saying that contracts aren't a guarantee that he'll be around for all that long. Renteria was also considered a young, up-and-comer who didn't last very long. And yes, I do recognize that the team needs were very different. Then again, if Stern and Peña work out, Crisp could be the fresh meat on the block.

            I'm surprised Coco would sign the deal, most people wait a year, boost their stats and therefore their value. Wonder how much he got.

              10 years in the league and still a young up and comer? You are about the only person who thought that about him.

                do you know anything about baseball? Most of your posts just seem like your talking out your ass. It's all different circumstances. Crisp is our leadoff man and CF'er that people already love.

                  Nice to see the team locking up a few key guys, especially a young guy like Crisp. This will give the team some payroll stability (no surprise arbitration awards) and gives Crisp some stability.

                  I figure Beckett is next, with Pena coming if/when he proves he can be an everyday player.

                    I'd definetely like to see them lock Beckett up for a while. I hope they do. I definetely don't want him to go anywhere.

                      I'm sure that's the plan.

                      He's under the team's control for another couple years at least (not sure exactly how many), but I think they'd love to sign him to a multi-year deal, buying out the rest of his arbitration years and the first couple free agent seasons.

                      Beckett seems to like Boston so far, a good sign. Just a matter of them being able to agree on years and dollars. Time will tell!

                        He's playing for a big contract this year, and the team will give it to him. They would be criminal not to.

                          Arroyo is a solid starting pitcher, hardly "a number 7 starter."

                            Is this post about me? If so I take extreme offense and if not whoever you wrote that about should take offense and I don't think the mods should allow you to denegrate people and their opinions that are just as valid as yours.

                              Fair enough, although he certainly had the age advantage over Cabrera (and a slight one over Nomar).
