    It’s like Arsenal, the London soccer team. Always good, never great, and probably the only top flight team in the world that collects positive incomes from the player transfers to and from other teams. Of course, when they face a contender, the are shown to be a notch below, which isn’t good for netting championships (but yeah, they finish in the top 5 yearly).

    Technically, I believe the Perry deal was a contract extension. It was agreed to on March 9, probably minutes or hours before free agency dealing commenced.
