I agree that salaries have maxed out, but whether that’s because teams have reached some top level of “what they can afford” is an entirely different issue. Clearly, the Sox would have been well positioned to redirect Manny’s massive salary to a big bat (Guerrero?) and a big arm (Colon?) if he was picked up. I assume that’s why the Yankees did not move on him. I really don’t know what the ramifications are for the And now there’s talk that A-Rod is also available.
