It suggests the dramatic change in the clubhouse culture, and the creation of a team of which players want to be a part.
You have to guess Pedey's open market deal woulda been something kinda like Ells' perhaps? So he "left" 40-50 million "on the table", as they say.
Yearly WAR breakdown of Cano projection - 5.5, 5.2, 5.0, 4.6, 4.0, 3.3, 2.8, 2.2, 1.6, 1.1
Pedroia was 2&1/2 years away from free agency. He took less to insure against injury/decline. He also would have been 2 years older than Ellsbury/Cano are now when he was a free agent, there was no shot a 32 year old 2nd baseman was getting contracts like theirs.
His deal would have ended after 2014, his 30 year old season. He was a year and a half from FA, not two and one half years.
IIRC, Pedroia's deal is for about 110 million. You'd have to think he'd have gotten a deal worth maybe 150-160 from somebody, unless he falls off a cliff.
It should have tipped people off about Ellsbury when he was the one guy who didn't grow a beard.
Uehara didn't have a beard. Although he did have one with the Rangers and Orioles
