Good number actually as well. There was speculation he'd only be happy with 2/$28-30M.

And ya, that Rotation is SICK, WICKED and NASTY.
As I keep trying to tell the excuse makers - "wahh! No one will sign in Toronto! Waaah! No one will come to Toronto cause it's Canadian! Waaaah" - if you actually build a good team you can get guys to sign and.... they won't even charge a premium.

I'd wager a hefty sum Dickey says he made the deal at $25 cause he wants to win. Novel idea.

EDIT: Also, this is how you WIN NOW! Not by doing small, isolated deals and trying to nurture young players at the same time. Doesn't work. You are either rebuilding or you go for it. Colangelo, take notes....
