This is exactly what I think.
It has to do with the clubhouse IMO.
Maybe Coop had some say, who knows.
Maybe Peavy made it a condition for his return, who knows.
But it's not about the money here, the Sox easily would have taken AJ for that contract.
There's way more to this than the Sox just being cheap as more than likely the media /(dumb) fans will portray this.
