While I agree totally regarding spending on (bulk, middle and set up) relief pitching, I’ve gotta know. Why do you think Eovaldi is a good bet to go 150ip? He’s done that only 3x in a 10 year career (discounting his rookie year and the 2020 tournament) and only once in the last 6 seasons.Sure, but if Eovaldi gets his $60M hell have been well worth it. The guarantee is only $34M and he onlgy gets the $60M if he's thrown 320 innings in the first two years of the deal. Its pretty well built to protect the team.
It didnt have to be Eovalid either - some other starter who isnt Kluber would have worked as well. $25M on two bullpen pieces made no sense unless they were willing to blow up their LT thresholds.
Edit: Ill be really clear - spending $25M on two relievers and then having budgetary problems finding a decent starter when there's only one guy who;s both decent and likely to be available for 150 innings in your rotation is a really poor allocation of resources.
FWIW, I absolutely would not have signed Martin (or Barnes), Rodriguez, or tendered Brasier or Taylor. I do like the Jansen add though.
