Marco Scutaro Signing Reactions

Yesterday the Red Sox agreed to a two-year, $12.5MM deal with free agent shortstop Marco Scutaro, with a mutual option for 2012.  The deal became official today.  The Red Sox will give a draft pick to the Blue Jays as compensation.  Let's take a look at some of the reactions around the web...

  • ESPN's Keith Law says that "with some regression, [Scutaro] will still represent a good value for his salary."  He says the loss of the draft pick "is the worst part of the deal," though.
  • ESPN's Peter Gammons has comments from former Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi praising Scutaro as "one of the best shortstops, period."
  • WEEI's Alex Speier shows that Scutaro almost can't help but be an improvement on Boston's 2009 shortstops.  In another article, Speier looks at how unique it is for Scutaro to have become a starting shortstop so late in his career.
  • Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe recalls Scutaro as a rookie for the Mets in '02, "at the center of a tug-of-war between manager Bobby Valentine and general manager Steve Phillips."
