Was this simply just an effort by Elias to stretch the 2021 payroll to sign a FA SS or starter he has in mind? I just cannot think that Elias would sign Sanchez and Valaika for nearly $2 million combined if money was THAT tight.
I assume he'd know what guys are thinking but virtually every thing I might ever tell himi related to this type o f thing would cover this situation.
"Keep it in your ****. Don't be an ass. Be respectful. Take someone out on a date before you make a move on them. Don't cheat on your wife"
I'd be irate with him if he tried to have a one night stand on the road while married.
