    They have the money.
    So you're basing it on basically nothing. That's fine. Just wondered if there was something substantial.

    They have the money. If you don’t believe it, well, they’ve done their job very well in convincing you.

    I don't know one way or the other. And neither do you, apparently. I was just trying to figure out if you were going on opinion or fact. I would have been very interested if you had some relevant facts to share.

    At the end of the day, we all know none of these teams are "poor". It's all relative to the competition, though.

    Solid article - https://www.theringer.com/mlb/2019/1...asmani-grandal

    This makes sense to me - "What you're seeing in the non-tenders is just the inevitable result of teams increasingly seeing $/WAR as a curve rather than a line, something that should always have been the case but empirically wasn't for the first 40 years or so of free agency."
