Wow, you mean like all these people saying how they think the Sox will go back to pre-2005 levels of payroll after one disappointing season are nothing but internet sensationalists reacting emotionally without any basis of fact to back their claims???
I'm quite sure if you go back to this thread last year, you'd see the same kind of apocalyptic pants-pissing by probably the same posters with the same agendas to push that haven't yet been convinced they really don't know what they're talking about. So let's all keep that in mind.
Furthermore, I would suspect that Humber will be non-tendered. I think he's gone. I also think your arb and pre-arb contracts are all running on the high side. But we'll see.
