WEEI.com's Rob Bradford has reported that Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello will not negotiate for a new contract during the season, which means he'll be a free agent at the end of it. Were the Red Sox wrong to NOT extend him before the season started?

[0:00:46] ... we work today to bring that life. Big day I WEEI Ellis John Farrell a hundred days and it will be talking about opening day at the Boston Red Sox and I'm. Looking up to that ...
[0:09:01] ... trap out to be hearing a lot more well for instance a James Shields right like I seem better than it James Shields after this year about what his numbers and say hey he's got more upside than shields I don't know perhaps but. The point that you're making I think it's a good one. Is that if you'd take all those guys you put starter number one of its quaint old and a bunch of the guys in between. The dollars may not trickle down the same percentage they did shields who probably was in play because there wasn't too much too after Lester insurers are. I think a boy elect its scherzer and Lester right well this year it's going to be price Guido Zimmerman. You know so that it's okay what's the next group maybe gray keys is a free agent.

[0:02:32] ... the Robin Johnson mossy wrote about the irony if you will of Cole Hamels pitching against the Red Sox after entire offseason of wondering if the Red Sox would try to acquire him via trade. What's the mood like in Philly are they talking about the Steelers is just one way street. No other projects Marcos today about the fact they don't have to trade Cole Hamels you know he is on the contract. Excuse me from 85 more years. To how long is the rebuilt. Right I mean. If what you get back in Cole Hamels makes you better two years from now that's one thing but if it doesn't two years from now hopefully get this thing turned around here at Cole Hamels. On the mound and it's why Ruben Amaro is holding out for the asking price I'm not so sure we're both change. Because you know because of that amount of time is that the his deal if they are two years away stale that you have like 23 more years of Cole Hamels so. I think you still Vista to be blown away. Early in order to deal this guy. I look at this and just again is just irony that's it.
