If the rumor is true that Bay did reject the red sox offer, which we can't prove or disprove at this point, who's to say the Yankees won't swoop in and offer him crazy money like with Texiera? The Yankees really do need OF help if they don't want to sign Matsui or Damon. That would leave them with Gardener and Melky right now, they have to fix that before the season starts without question they will make a run for a big name.
How would you guys feel if the red sox made a large offer to Holliday? I think this would actually work out quite well. I would REALLY love to see the red sox sign both Holliday AND Bay. Move Bay to right field and get rid of JD Drew. Adding Holliday would bring us another 30 HR hitter.
