You're not getting the point.
The Jays are willing to pay top dollars if they think the player will be worth it for the length of the contract.
That's the principle with which the ball club runs.
Even if we won the rights to Darvish, we would not have signed him to anything more than 5 or maybe 6 years. The 50 M is
for the Darvsh scenario because without it we cant even get to talk to him about a contract. That's the only reason the team was allowed to use it that scenario.
Just because you have money to spend does not mean you'll go out and pay $5 for something worth $3. No responsible person/organization does that.
