I was reminded earlier today about the handling of free agents in MLB after the Flood decision opened the gates. The owner of the A's, Charly Finley, wanted to just make all of the players free agents every year.
Anyway, my wife was watching the Duke game earlier, and I noticed the ticker have its own heading about Cliff Lee. This jogged my memory about Finley, and made me think, "What would the Hot Stove Season look like if all players were free agents?"
It would just be insane. I can just imagine reporters' heads exploding, as they contemplate how much is going on each season.
