The Red Sox remodeling project continued today, as they agreed to terms with Shane Victorino on a three-year, $37.5MM contract. The 32-year-old, a client of John Boggs & Associates, slipped this year to a .255/.321/.383 line for the Phillies and Dodgers, but still did well in free agency.

So adios Ross. Feel like the value would be better with him there.

I think the thing with Swisher was that the Sox didn't want to lose a draft pick.

Your absolutely right. I can already see them trading these guys away and Henry cutting a check again because they will suck again.

Damn, it was sounding like the Indians were a serious player to get him. Oh well.

Cherington might be one of the 5 worst GM's in all of baseball. Just unbelievably inept.
