Broxton signed for 3 years/21 million, he'll have a decent leash.
It's seems they gave him that huge contract so they would force themselves to start Aroldis. Almost like they didnt trust themselves not to waffle back and forth so they gave Broxton closer money so they had to use him as a closer. Using marshall would have been the way to go. They could have spent that money much better
I took Fujikawa, without knowing too much about him, just having read an article or two. It was more an Anti-Marmol pick. Marmol is erratic, the cubs have tried to trade him during the offseason and he had some off the field issues this winter to boot. I can easily see him out of a job early in the season.
Rock, nice job on the spreadsheets!
