Do you get penalized?
Again, been a while, but I did something a few years ago on teams that had max contracts, and teams that had the max IFA in a season.
IFA did a little better than max FA, but their WS win pct during the time they had those players on their roster was lower than the avg joe win pct.
So you can follow them down the rabbit hole, or, it's not the end of the world if you don't.
I think, when you're playing with a smaller budget than the rest of the league, that you're penalized.
I don't think WS win pct is the best way to determine effective strategies. Short series, blah, blah, blah.
