The questions to be answered are:
A.) Will we go after a singular "star" player, or
B.) Try to spread the salary around by going after two players of good, but not "great" player, or
C.) Do nothing and see if anybody else gets released that we catch on the rebound due to a team signing any of the higher priced FA's
Plus, what position do we end up addressing?
Intriguing moments here. This has been a fun free agency, tbh. Much to talk about with a lot of teams and players making moves on a large quantity of players.
You give this FO way too much credit. Secondly, this is not the type of team that goes after high profile guys even if it's a area of need. The only reason why we ever pursued and signed JJo and Manning was because we were historically bad and it finally went through their heads that there's something amiss here and we should actually do something for a change!
