    If he rejects the offer, the Sox still have to give up their second round pick, correct?

    If he accepted the offer, he'd be a Yankee.

    As Rusnak pointed out, yes. That said, 2nd round picks have definite value and you don't want to just be giving them away for free, but they really shouldn't be a huge consideration when considering whether to sign a (debatably) quality player

    But yeah not that the Sox have all this great success with high draft picks but I think giving Granderson 2-3 years at $12 million a year and giving up a second round pick... not a good idea.

    I'm not saying writing for MLB Nation is writing for the New York Times or anything but I can't believe that's the picture of yourself you'd want to show, no matter how you look.

    So we've agreed that fat chicks should go drink bleach and die. What's our thoughts on Granderson?

    I think he should go drink bleach and die. Or sign here for a steep hometown discount.

    That's actually a really good, sound, market-value deal for Granderson. If I had known the Sox could've signed him to that type of deal, I would've been down.

    Not a ton of success in the draft or in developing guys. It's a short-sighted move for sure, but, look at this offseason. They clearly aren't rebuilding.

    I don't think bringing back PK to create buzz in the fan base for cheap really signifies 'not rebuilding'.

    And I don't put much stock into the past in regards to how a new GM will draft and under a CBA our owner helped sculpt in order to make them more willing to go after higher ceiling guys, rather than the college arms and what not they did on the cheap for so long.

    Let's face it: they're aren't competing this year and probably not next year either. Maybe in year 3? So $64M for 2 years of him mattering? And losing the 33rd or whatever pick? No thanks.

    Hell, if we're talking established everyday major leaguers here you're gonna take most of them over a 2nd round pick. Of course Granderson would be worth it.

    even if the soxxx could draft, a second round pick's never going to have the value, on average, of even a mediocre MLBer
