They also had a lot of talent on the roster and in their system from five years of losing. They used that system to make trades and promote players all season. You can't take just any 90 loss team and sign 14 free agents and say that's gonna do it. Most 90+ loss teams are in dire straights. You take our roster and sign 14 free agents this offseason with a payroll around $80 million like the Tribe and 100 times out of 100 we're competing for last.
