But there's one thing though. If we want to sign someone like Laich long term, we have to make sure he's a player who will fit in our roster. Our core is taking most of our money so we can't add too many big pieces if we keep Gomez.
Did you include the cap increase? Otherwise it does not add up.
If we keep the same team, we have little increases:
- Wiz replaces Hamr. Probably an economy of 500K (if Wiz signs at 5M)
- Markov resigns at same or little less
- All RFAs except Gorges are not getting an increase or very little
- Gorges will get an extra 2M at the most
So if the cap goes up 5M, we have plenty $$$ to spend.
