It is comedic. Here we have Sather who doesn't pony up the dough easily to any of his RFA's, but yet, when UFA's are on the market (especially those who are a bit, *ahem* seasoned), he'll throw out anything possible to get them to be a Ranger. Not only that, he'll throw in no trade clauses, no movement clauses, etc. I can't imagine what else he offers.

There are some reasons for this, and RFA's don't have leverage as UFA's do, but still, management is flawed. Mainly Sather.
