It's official:
It'll be four years and $68 million. Press conference will be this afternoon at Fenway Park as many predicted.

Back with more in a little bit.

Somethin tells me ran into Theo's office to sign that today...

High finance tells me that was already signed but not released until today to avoid some kind of tax or cap or whatever other non-free market based BS the teams and players contend with. But yeah the timing looks like the Sox like giving up 5 runs and not pitching an official game.

Can't believe I didn't learn about your site sooner! I'm trying to go from pinkhat to bluehat by watching every game in the Sox 2010 season, and I'm doing as much as I can to immerse myself in the sport... including trading, drafting, and contract signing. Ugh.

I love this rogers sports pack! Watching the two west coast games now, shemp is slightly more tolerable in an angels uniform. SLIGHTLY. Minnesota has funky new uniforms too, I see.

Shitty to see fox sports has that stupid permanent pitch zone indicator on now for widescreen, like they had in the playoffs last year.

Good to have our rotation set for the future with the big 3 locked up long term. Hopefully they can deliver...

Alli: Welcome!

I think this was posted in the gamethread but it deserves a 2nd mention...

Josh Sacco says "SCREW EM!" to the MFY. Awesome.

Glad this is done....
I kinda like the length too. I think 3 would have better for the team, but 4 gives him a concession and should be a nice good-faith gesture.
Now earn it, bitch!

He had better step it up!

What do you guys think about Paps?

Because it was teamwork defense that saved him Sunday... not going to lie... I was concerned.

Excited about Lester's start tonight against AJ.

I woke up feeling like C.C. Sabathia this morning.
