I don't want the Sox signing any more guys over 30 to long term deals.
I want no part of Ellsbury. It would be one thing if he were 26. He's not. He's 30. He's got maybe two prime years left. A rebuilding team definitely should not sign Ellsbury, because he'll be washed up by the time the rebuilding is complete.
I will laugh my ass off if the Cubs throw millions at Ellsbury.
