But, for example, the Votto contract was bearable, if not wise, because every team will have a lot more money and it's possible 25 per year will be the new 15 per year by 2020. (That's my own take, not the Annual that I recall.)
Anyone know the luxury tax threshold now and if it's going up at some point after all the TV money arrives in 2-3 years? If it stays the same, we could be seeing a more NFL like model where most teams have a similar amount to spend.
Beat me to it.
Contracts locked in now may look cheap down the road.
I wish Choo would fire Boras. I think the Reds could possibly get something done then.
