  1. OK – but the dude wants 5 or 6 years, and over $100 mil. That WOULD be stupid.

    (tho – I thought AJ's contract was the definition of stupid – 5 year contract for one year's performance.)

    • Burnett AND Lackey's deals were over commitments, IMO, but that's kind of the point. Free agent pitching is expensive.

      • The Lackey one wasn't just an over commitment, it was outright stupid based on how Lackey's career was trending as his terrible, terrible history at Fenway.
