There's now a cap on IFAs. And no one knows how "in" the Darvish sweeps he really was. Just that he put a bid in. We were in on Chapman and that one smarts a little. Cespedes smarts a little in retrospect (although committing that kind of money based on private workouts and a video of the kid would have been a huge gamble).
