It is cheap as hell to sign free agents now, and you can get 2-3 wins out of practically little commitment if you shop in the right aisle. As long as the Jays keep their top prospects, and surround the existing talent with free agents that won't block the Pearson's of the world, then that's the path to take. Maybe it won't lead to the playoffs in 2020, but you can build a good team quickly now that prospects are up, and it won't negatively impact the rebuild since we'd be keeping all of our picks and prospects.
Really? This seems like the exact opposite of what most people would think.
It does feel like things have swung in the other direction in a lot of cases.
There was definitely value to be had the past 2 off-seasons.
I think it would be interesting to see a team (the Jays would make sense) try an unconventional method out of Masai's playbook where you offer a significantly higher aav for shorter term.
Unfortunately this FA class is terribly weak.
