i am playing in the wrong world, if you expect better guys to come along on a consistant basis, i would be all over that guy,  i bet you can't get him for 15 mil, someone will bid more

Ya, one of my worlds that just ended only had one decent IFA prospect the whole year and he wasn't as good as this one.

I'd rather use the extra 36 million player payroll budget I had on prospects rather than aged free agents, when I have no chance of making the playoffs this year
There's a reason for this:   .422

I think this post tells us the reason.

Of course, one of your worlds is where the Best GM Ever resides so I guess you never really had a chance in there.

Well, either that or this is you getting ready to make some HBD roster moves:

Your leaguemates right after the big transfer:

Im .422 because I take over rebuild projects, not established teams. My two current teams had a total of one major league worthy prospect in the minors

You do know that you can win at the ML level while your minors suck ***, right?

OMG I NEVER KNEW THAT!

Really, if you are going to pour over 20% of your total budget into one player,  you're going to get it up the pooper. Over and over again.

Hey, at least Boats n Hoes is a great team name

Meh.  Not so much.

His health and durability are not that bad.  He is worth signing.  His contact rating alone coupled with his other numbers will make him a very high AVG and OBP guy, which is valuable.  Even if he tops out at 85 OVR and you don't need him or like him, you will be able to trade him for pitching talent that would have cost much more on the IFA market.

Plus I am of the opinion that decent IFA's should be nabbed when they come along, even if early in the season.  It is better to get a future big leaguer in IFA than hold your money for a future HoF type that never comes along and you are left holding cash at seasons end.

He would make a great LF (COF) #2 hitter. Unfortunately, those are the best and easiest positions to find power bats. If you had plenty of power at the other positions, he would be a great add. If you don't, eh..not so much.
