I'm a little torn on this.
I think Vilar was great and a team that doesn't need to be pinching pennies could easily swing having him on the team. But I think there is something to the market trying to correct itself for uber inflating arbitration prices. Like what would he cost you on a 1 year deal in FA? Can you be sure it'd be $10m or more? Cause if not, say it's more like a $6-7m number, then it makes sense guys like him are getting NT.
The finance person in me is warring with the baseball person in me on this one.
