they had to overpay him by a massive amount before other teams could even negotiate with him? kinda doubt it.
Unless they have a pulse on what they feel like the market is going to be on relievers this season. We just saw what a strong pen could do for you. I don't agree with the signing, but if League is a guy that they trust ... so be it. Let's see what other types of deals relievers fetch this winter before calling this an overspend.
this is an overspend no matter what. whether other teams overspend as well doesn't mean anything except that the dodgers aren't the only ones to make the mistake.
btw, this overspend is based on 27 innings. if they really think they can trust him based on that sample then you have more to worry about than one bad contract.
