And when you take that into consideration their infutility seems more egregious. As for MLB, in the last decade name me a top FA to sign here. They signed a few in the 90's when we still had a decent crowd showing up and had championship memories still lingering.
A.J Burnett was (arguably) the best pitcher in baseball when he signed here.
