I'm not arguing against the idea of spending money on free agency. I'm just not remembering a team that brought in a bunch free agents in one offseason and won it all. It seems to me the teams that are close and get one or two to get them over the edge are not uncommon. However those players usually come into an already established team that is competitive and has chemistry with each other. Signing ten free agents, even if they're good, takes time for them to learn to work with each other.
