Since FA's now gradually lower their asking price the longer they sit on the FA list, how about if we can bid below their minimum and just have them not sign until their demands drop to that level?

Say there's an 8 million dollar pitcher on the FA list, but he's over-priced and you're willing to pay him 5. You should be able to bid 5 mil and just have him sit there until his demands drop to meet yours, or someone else pays what he's asking.

I think FA's would rather be payed less than their ideal amount to play, then not being paid or playing at all.
