5. I know. I think they should be spending more on players.

Now Iím not suggesting they should throw ungodly sums of money at players who donít warrant it (like Ellsbury and McCann), but when free agents they want come up, they shouldnít be balking because of the money. My Red Sox are in the same boat. Their payroll has been high the last few years, but a large part of that wasnít for their stars, it was for expensive mistakes.

Big market teams have the luxury of being wrong on big contracts. As someone once said, itís not the stars that are expensive, itís the high price of mediocrity.
