Every team in the major league deals with that, so your first sentence goes for all mid to small market clubs, not just Cincy as it seems you imply.
I'm not saying they shouldn't lock up the right players...I'm commenting on how whenever it's time for money to come off the books, it's already spent. So when Milton comes off the books, it's already eaten up by guys who are already here. The team doesn't get better in that case. It stays the same.
Just a comment...not bashing anyone.
