Free Agent Compensation Newsbeat

This at best is incomplete analysis, especially for a guy who quotes Fowler’s WAR; at worse, it’s just bad.
We don’t know what Fowler was asking for. For his career, he’s about a 2 win player; $13M is a decent deal, but $13M + a pick isn’t. There’s no way I’d pay him more, or for more years. The same could be said for Desmond.
Kendrick wasn’t any good last year, and is a middle infielder in his 30s. Buyer beware.
But the worst is lumping in Cespedes and Upton. According to USA Today, Cespedes is the 7th highest paid player in MLB this year, and Upton is #20. In no way were they hurt financially by the rules.

Ahh, because teams are part of the process. Free agency is collectively bargained and is not some inherent right for players.
Edit: Link fixed. Sorry, Jim.
