Thread: Bids on Free Agents

    Bids on Free Agents

    I don't know what happened, but I bid $5M for Pitcher with a asking price of $4+M and ended up losing him to a team for the asking price. How does that happen? I need to know for future reference as to what went wrong. He was never on my team and it is not like I had a losing team. So what other reasons would account for this and one other team offered 100K more than me and did not get him either.

    probably either that team has a better record than yours over the past while, or its current pitching staff is less deep, players will choose the team that would in theory give them more playing time. there's also at least some randomness in the decision, everything else is just weighting it

    another thing is that the difference between your offers wasn't actually all that large, you'll see less randomness with greater gaps between offers

    Or is your AAA full? If you have 10 or more players in AAA you aren't able to sign another FA.

    I tried to sign someone I had dropped as room opened up on my roster. His base was 1.799 M, and I offered 4 M. Ended up losing to someone who bid 1.976 M. Sometimes players don't care about money.
