agreed.

but i was just refuting the point that all mlb teams are being forced to spend money to improve their teams. that is not the case with the marlins or pirates owners who have clearly put profits over winning.
No team has spent more over the past four drafts than the Pirates' $48 million. That includes franchise-record bonuses for Pedro Alvarez ($6.35 million), Jameson Taillon ($6.5 million) and, of course, Cole.

That total also includes the $5 million they spent on outfielder Josh Bell, who they chose with the top pick in the second round last season.

MLB has agreed to let teams use revenue sharing for player development as opposed to FA signings.
