    That's the way I heard it too. I could swear that Stone said that Rodon will join the White Sox and pitch exclusively out of the bull pen. Oh well.

    I agree. This is the second time in three years that the tenth worst team fell to an unprotected spot. Houston just didn't want to sign him after picking him. He's healthy. He was cleared by two...

    Now Houston gets rewarded for manipulating the poor system. They should be punished, not rewarded.

    I'd hate to be the team to have been drafting 10th. They're gonna get screwed if they sign a FA.

    No big deal, Dave. You are obviously not taking age in to account. Both Desmond and Aybar were older than Castro is right now in their first full seasons. Cabrera is a little better comparison. ...

    Then I am interpreting it wrong. But if the gauge is 6 million dollars per win when negotiating FA contracts, that's what it is. I just couldn't imagine paying 18 million dollars for 3 wins. I...

    Again, I understand how it works. I just don't agree with it.

    It's definitely not how it works. I'm just trying to make a point of how inaccurate the system is, to judge a players value.

    I understand that. I just don't agree with it. Either way, that number is way too high. In free agency, a player ALWAYS gets more than he's worth. That's why the number is too high.
