Stop Making Sense

With the Randy Johnson-to-the-Yankees deal still in the works–I didn’t know that Kaz Ishii was part of this now–the Boston Red Sox acted swiftly yesterday, agreeing to a deal with Matt Clement (three years, about $25 million). After over-paying for Edgar Renteria, I think the Clement contract is very sensible. I’m frustrated that Clement didn’t choose another destination; it’s too bad the Yankees didn’t go after him instead of Jaret Wright (or even Carl Pavano, you could argue). But, he’ll pitch for Boston instead. He isn’t a control pitcher but he’s got nasty stuff. This deal keeps the Yankees and Sox extremely close in talent, don’t you think?
