Well, no, obviously not. But that was done quite a long time ago, it's hard to do anything about that fact now. As I see it, what Homer could be blamed for in this case, again, is going into the season with 50+ contracts (counting Couturier) and then the Shelley signing is pretty irrelevant, you have to focus on the more recent signings he's done.
It might of course be that they really didn't count on Couturier to be ready already this season and was legitimately surprised with the way he played in camp. Still, you'd prefer not to be completely up against the contract limit since it makes any future trades more limited/complicated.
