And overpaying for KROD? Please that was a steal. Guy was looking for 5 yrs 70 mill. Omar played it patiently and realized he wasnt going to bid against himself and got him for 3yrs 36 ithink. I mean do you really think no other team would have swooped in for the guy who just broke thesingle season record if he was going to take 2/20 or less?? Cmon
Wood was still available, and you were about to get Putz. These were both better/cheaper options then the cost for K-Rod.
If you want to spend $12 mil a year on something as unimportant as a closer, then be my guest.
Teams with real skill build sweet bullpens from scraps.
