Heck, name the last "star" player to get released in the middle of their contract. This isn't football.
Not a "star" player or a Sox player, but I'll throw Russ Ortiz into the discussion.

He had $22 million left on his contract at the time the Diamondbacks cut him loose. Of course, that was six or seven years ago. Teams don't eat money like that too often.
