For those wanting to see a farewell tour, at what costs are you willing to see this? Yes, the Sox are not going to contend next year but I rather they try and field the best team possible. PK was atrocious last year, worse than Adam Dunn. What happens if you bring him back and he has another bad year? It's okay for PK to be horrible at the plate but not for Dunn?
I hope he retires and then the Sox can schedule a few celebrations.
If he retires, I am ok with that. I don't want to see PK play in another city for another team his last year. While it is not ok for him to be awful at the plate, I'd rather see him do it than Dunn. Dunn hasn't played first for 14 years.
I understand both sides, but I think (much like last year) we can afford to pay a guy $7 mil for a vet that has '05 ties. That might not be smart business, but it does play well for the fans. Most casual fans would rather see a PK farewell tour than have a new guy at 1st that no one knows.
