Free Agents When the best is off the table, then the second best is swept up, do we get desperate and jump at the left overs? If we cannot get what we want is it reasonable to say we should get what is left?

I cannot buy into that theory. If Bumgartner does not sign with us I can understand. Does that make Kuechel suddenly desirable? The real question is how does he compare with Dobnak, Graterol, Thorpe, Smeltzer.

I hate buying out of desperation.

The same with Ryu. Why would he sign with us. We are the proverbial bargaining chip. It is the way the Vikings coerced a stadium because the could more to LA.

The only question worth asking is whether the free agent we have available has more upside than the players already on the roster. Is the expenditure worthwhile?

Dream big, but the train already left the station and we were not on it. So don't pursue free agents just to say we got one.
