On the Lindstrom point totally worth it for Hammel's contributions if nothing else. Wada got injured after he signed?, I'm not sure what was wrong with that. Players get injured and get paid. Am I missing something?
That was almost $10m on 2 MR that we could get as good or better performance from minimum salary players. MR is not the place to waste payroll, it's where you save it.
That $10m could have paid for any number of combinations of improvements in other parts of the lineup.
