I would have gone into detail about the new television contract money flowing into the coffers of MLB teams, and how the trade for Adrian Gonzalez and the contracts for Votto, Pujols and Werth are not out of the ordinary -- they are becoming baseball's new ordinary because there is so much new TV deal floating around on the market.
Instead, I'll just let the latest free agent signing speak for itself:
The Dodgers have re-signed reliever Brandon League to a three-year, $22.5-million contract, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.Having trouble recalling who Brandon League is? Probably because he only had 15 saves last year; and he blew 6 saves, to boot. This piece of crap has a multi-year deal making $7.5 million per year, given to him by the team that just bloated their payroll with Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett to sit atop of their contract to Matt Kemp.
So. Somebody be the next person to tell me that the Red Sox can get a one year deal for Mike Napoli. Go ahead, I dare you.
