The Price is Wrong Bit#$!

Take a look at the 2009 Sox salaries. For the most sake I think the Sox are getting what they pay for. I guess J.D. Drew's two big playoff games were worth 14 mill?...Right. Lugo is just the second coming of Edgar Renteria, why hasn't he been shipped out for a bag of balls and cash considerings yet? What really sticks out to me is that the M.V.Pedroia is only the 8th highest paid player on the team. Wow, really 8th highest on the team how do the Sox keep doing it. Any other team would have to lay down to re-sign a former M.V.P. ehhhm A-Rod. But, the Sox and mainly Theo have found a way to sign guys early for short money. What is it that brings these guys back? The Dirty Water? The Fans? The media? Nah it's got to be the Take a look Youk is underpaid as well, but I guess an attitude like his deserves to be taken down a notch. Jason Bay how about under 5 mil a year to be a 100+ RBI 30 Hr type of guy. Smoltz might have been a little bit of a risk salary wise, but seasoned vets with his type of versatility and experience don't come cheap. Jason Veritek I'm looking in your direction.
