I agree that they are probably just trying to make other teams overpay.
Is it like bidding? Can a team retract an offer?
yeah a team can take an offer off the table which is probably wut the As will do if cameron seems like hes gonna sign with them.. i really dont see them offerin cameron that kind of money and being serious about getting him.. and as said before same goes for foulke.. this is how beane works.. he just drives up the prices so other teams overspend and then he can go after guys he really wants for cheaper when teams have hit their limits
