Getting FA's to sign here

Remember when the Mav's were the laughing stock of the NBA?  When free agents spurned them and the only use in them negotiating with the Mav's was to up the deal somewhere else?  The ranger's franchise has always had a hard time getting good starting pitchers to come because of the heat and the park.  Milwood was an exception.  

But now hitters????

With the evolution of the $10M+/yr contract,
multi-year deals, and more teams willing to give these type contracts, we can only assume its going to get worse.  The value of prospects have risen to the point where if you want to go out and grab an impact bat via trade you are going to give up 3-5 of them.  The off season is not over but we are no closer to being competitive in 2009 then we were when we started, so in my mind, we took a step back.  

Unfortunately, I joined many of you in thinking 2010 at the earliest.  That realization sucked.  I'd really like to hear an interview with JD that revisits managements "its looking more like 2009" take on current situation and explain to us how we are going to pull that off.  I didn't expect much, just a glimpse that we are headed in the right direction.  

Not signing someone to a bad contract was not what I was looking for.
