3-5 was probably market value for him, but if AA was up against another team and they were pushing 6-7 for him, than doesn't putting forward that extra few million make sense? He decided to go all in and when he decides he wants someone he makes sure to get him.
This is exactly what competing is all about, takes serious money and a manager has to have the balls to go out and get a player of his quality.
If 3 million is the difference between Melky Cabrera and a raw Anthony Gose in the outfield, I am perfectly happy with that.
