    Yeah I know, but he's already ruled out going to the Yankees.

    I heard that interview too. He wants an extension before spring training, which I highly doubt the Sox will do.

    I don't know. I think they can take out insurance that would cover them financially if he couldn't go.

    Since he'd only be looking for another year at the same amount he has now, and with the lack of pitching I think they'd do it.

    I'm not sure where they are going to be in terms of the luxury tax, but since some of the younger prospects aren't progressing as quickly as they hoped it wouldn't hurt to keep another good pitcher under contract.

    They seem to be making a major push to field the best on paper team for next year - especially if they make a deal for Helton (though what prospects do they need to give up?) so having that team in place for 2 years isn't a bad idea

    a 1 year commitment for another $13M or so, when andy pettite and Randy Johnson each got 2 years at around 16M per?
