Default Now on to Crede...

I think he's the only one left for arbitration right? With his "EVIL" agent..what is his price tag?

We also have "South Side" Rob (I can't spell his last name) going to Arbitration too.

In watching the Comcast replays you really appreciate Crede's defense as well as his clutch hitting. If there is a way for KW to lock him up for 3 years I'd love to see it.

On another note, what are Contreras and his agent thinking right now?

5 years, $37.5 mill, $7.5 per? That's good enough, no?

We know what to expect from Joe: great defense, 20-30 HRs, 3-5 game-winning hits a year, very clutch, a great clubhouse guy, etc. I think we can get him sign that offer.

No way. That would be utter insanity. Joe Crede made 400K last year. Again, Joe Crede made 400K last year.

Crede's situation will be determined by his back. If the Sox are confident his back is fine, he may garner a 2 or possibly 3 year deal. Otherwise, he will get a 1 year deal to avoid arbitration at a couple million.

.
Not unless he is going to pitch. I would use Koskie as a template for a Crede contract.

I agree.His back is the determining factor.If it's right,he'll
get a multi year deal.If not, a 1 year deal would not surprise
me.I love his "D".I just wish he could be more consistent at
the plate and drive in a few more runs.To me,I see him as a
.275/.280 hitter with 25 HR's and 90 to 100 RBI's.

I could see a 3 year 12-15 million. (BACK ISSUES???) Clutch. Keep in mind the issues on this very board about his short comings.

No way Joe is worth 7.5 mil a year at this point in his career. MY guess is he'll sign something similar to what Rowand got (3y/$9m IIRC)

R-Mack still is up for arbitration.
