i'm losing out on my former player.
i had most wins in the league last season
i went to the world series
and the FA was on my team
the team out bidding me was under .500 last year. and has averages 60 wins over the last five seasons. he does have a 95 rated hitting coach (as opposed to my 86). but WTF

I was #1 for three real-life days. I lost #1 (and the FA) when another owner finally signed his bullpen coach.I'm starting to notice cases in which it's immediately evident that a player is going to get multiple max bids, so the player waits till the very end to sign... as if waiting to see who can finally one up the other(s). Anyone think that's wrong?
Conversely, if one owner is the only one putting a huge initial bid on a player, that can induce the player to sign fast.
