And that is likely a major driving element to all this FA spending. The FO clearly saw a bunch of significant concerns that would force their hands in the draft if not resolved via free agency, and so as a result they've gone hard at the FA market to make that happen.
They're also getting some insanely good values on short term deals. Vasquez is now looking like the big money signing and he'll be barely 30 when his deal is up. Welker for 2/$12M and DRC for 1/$5M are crazy value signings.
