Why is it Drury and his agent take no part in it?

Isn't there 3 parties involved here?
Because ultimately, it's the GM who decides to pay a player. The player can ask for whatever he wants. It's the GM who decides that the player is worth that much. And in baseball, there's no hard cap. If there was one, you'd hear a lot more about it. With the Mets paying Castillo and Perez to not be on the team and the Yanks with the likes of Kei Igawa and Carl Pavano.
