I believe this is the first time they've come away with somebody who legitimately was "best in class" during the winter. They've always setteled for the leftovers after the big dogs ate.
Yeah, It's a lot of money, but he's been as connsistant as you could ask for and it's become a matter of team need. I would rather have him as a closer than any of the starters out there likely to get that kind of money.
As much as I'll ever applaud a free agent move, I have to applaud this one.
