    OK, I understand the rules and am beginning to believe something funky happened with these contracts now. This is getting ridiculous. I know I missed a few sims but good god man.

    I haven't updated OOTP. I wonder if that is having some affect on these ridiculous bonuses being offered. A mil for a cy young, we can't afford that.

    You either offered the contract or you have your settings to allow for the CPU to offer contracts. Either way, its on you.

    Not signing 1st / 2nd round draft picks have always counted as strikes, regardless of the reason for not signing them.

    Meh, its a fine use of a strike. Fuck the CPU taking a MR in the 1st round.
