    Jacoby Ellsbury, healthy only 2 of the past 4 seasons, and his agent Scott Boras are prowling the streets of the free agent market with the notion that Carl Crawford's $142M contract is well, "an old contract."

    Ellsbury who has a career AVG/OBP/SLG .297/.350/.439, a single GG, one season where he hit over 10 home runs, missed two of his last four seasons with injuries, he's 30 years old, and his agent believes he should get upwards of 7 yrs $180M.

    Some might argue it's not that selfless, as it's in the best interest of his health. Which it could be, but first basemen arenít any more immune to concussions than any other position as his close friend, Justin Morneau, a first baseman, experience a career changed ...

  3. Red Sox thankful to not have to chase players like Santana or Nolasco

  5. The New York Yankees looking to crash the Draft Party?
