That kinda seems like a lot of money for Pedro but there doesn't seem to be a lot of pitchers out there this year.

It is overpaying a bit--I'd prefer a two year deal--but remember, Colon got four years and 12 per last year.
I'm back. Sorta.

That is sweet. First, Theo goes for the value with Mantei, and now he goes for the best FA pitcher out there. If Pavano follows suit, you would have to like the Sox rotation vs the Yankees:
Schill
Pedro
Pavano
Bronson
Wakefield

vs.

Mussina
Javier or RJ
Milton
Wright
Orlando?

This offseason is really showing Theo's true colors, and is arguably one of the best GMs in the league at 30 years old

I'd be very, very surprised if the Sox sign both Pavano and Pedro. I say it's one or the other, plus someone cheaper, like Wells on a one year deal.

It's my understanding that the Sox could get Pedro and Pavano, but would have to downgrade at catcher from Varitek to probably Matheny and at shortstop from O-Cab or Renteria to Pokey or Counsell.
