(My GM) isnít bound to match contracts given out by (Bowden, Dombrowski, Minaya, and Sabean). If (the agent) says that Omar is worth $4 million a year so (Player X) is now worth $15 million, Iíll gladly tell them to go ask Sabean for $15 million. He knows that he canít, and so do we. This is good news, not bad news.

An interesting take, I thought.

An interesting take, I thought.I agree with the guy's take. These early signings don't necessarily mean the better players will get outrageous contracts. These teams are trying to fill holes early and are overpaying as a result.

As more teams fill those holes, there are less teams to bid against. I bet the last group of FA's signed will settle for far less than their worth, when compared to those who have signed early

And then I swoop in with performance clauses and other incentives on the garbage that's left.

I love this job
