Justin Verlander doesn't buy the theory that the market for big time free agents has been limited by rebuilding clubs this offseason.
"100 or so free agents left unsigned. System is broken," Verlander tweeted on Monday. "They blame “rebuilding” but that’s BS. You’re telling me you couldn’t sign Bryce or Manny for 10 years and go from there? Seems like a good place to start a rebuild to me. 26-36 is a great performance window too."
Bryce Harper and Manny Machado remain unsigned as spring training approaches. Last year, J.D. Martinez didn't sign with the Boston Red Sox until Feb. 20.
