Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander does not buy the theory that the market for large free agents is limited by the rebuilding of teams that are unable to sign stars.
100 free agents who are not signed. System is defective. They blame "reconstruction," but that's BS. You tell me you could not sign Bryce or Manny for 10 years and go from there? Seems a good place to start a rebuilding for me. 26-36 is also a great performance window.

Good news for Phil fans. But should not every team be in win-right mode? What good is it if you do not want to win? Thank you for being in an organization that wants to win! pic.twitter.com/GoDYBYXpEJ

The giants of Buster Posey have recently met with Harper, but it is not clear whether they Something to offer or want something in the area of the 10-year, $ 300-million deal that Harper had reportedly rejected by the Nationals. Harper and Machado have met with a number of teams, but the urgency that accompanied the advertisements of Alex Rodriguez and Albert Pujols was particularly absent.
Instead, teams target free agents like A.J. Pollock, Patrick Corbin, Michael Brantley, Yasmani Grandal and Jed Lowrie.  Reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich also strained Harper / Machado deadlock and caught his former team president David Samson in the buttocks Marlins Samson was fired by Derek Jeter's owner group in 2017 – before Yelich was traded to the Brewers – but he already had quite a few stars to attract potential customers. His exchange with Yelich shows the extent to which the debate over freedom of choice has deteriorated.
In line with your anti-player rhetoric, adapting to this "new reality" is not exactly the solution, either https://t.co/OT8Z9HpGgH

Martinez broke up in 2017 from a huge split between Tiger and Diamondbacks .303 with 45 Homer and 104 RBIs. The story suggested a long-term, massive contract for the then 29-year-old. However, the market remained surprisingly quiet, and in the end he took out a five-year, $ 110-million deal for the Red Sox.
Arrieta was two seasons away from his dominant Cy Young campaign, but was still regarded as one of the top brands of the rotation starter in the free agency. According to reports, the right-handed person rejected a bid by Cubs on the scale of what Yu Darvish had finally given – six years, $ 126 million. He opted for a three-year, $ 75 million Phillies deal.
