from the Ellsbury thread:
"It is not known what the Nationals offered, only that they fell far short of the Red Sox’s understandably high demands, and the discussions never reached advanced stages. But it would not be a surprise if they tried again for Ellsbury, who would become a free agent after 2013, if the Red Sox make him available (and that’s a significant “if”)."
- I want to know what the sox are expecting, though we won't unless something actually happens. I don't think Rizzo is going to give up Farm Hauls two offseasons in a row.
