And why wouldn't you Sox fans want a stud left handed pitcher who is still young? He's gonna dominate for another 7 years.
Santana is special but all of the players that might have moved have a very good chance to be very very good. At cheap prices
In particular Ellsberry is one of the guys that shown he is special, while Lester is the player that half of the Sox organization thought was their best young pitcher, that include Paps.
And the other guys are all rated in 100 of young players by ESPN.
So it the long run this might have been the best thing for Boston
