the red sox have been doing a lot of in season contracts as of late..
and at strange times....Beckett started off terrible last year=extension...AJ Burnett has more wins than the Red Sox , and still 2 big contracts announced..

Just out of character a little bit for the Front office.

The extension probably means the hand issue checked out.

Looks like we're going to be seeing a lot of the same guys for a bunch of seasons. Personally, I don't see any reason to complain...

...except Lackey is going to be one of those guys. *sigh*
