The Red Sox signed MVP candidate Jacoby Ellsbury to a one year deal that’ll pay him $8.05 million next year. Ellsbury won both the come back player of the year award as well as coming in second place to Justin Verlander for the AL MVP. He had a monster season and you hope he call follow that up with another nice one in 2012.
The Red Sox also signed Mike Aviles to a one year deal worth $1.2 million. Aviles was scooped up from Kansas City last year and he’s nice to have because he can play anywhere. That leaves David Ortiz, Daniel Bard, Alfredo Aceves and Andrew Bailey as arbitration eligible players who haven’t signed yet. Nobody has gone to the arbitration table since Theo Epstein has been in the mix and you’d hope they don’t start now.
