    Getting Donaldson on a 1 year deal makes the Mac signing much more understandable.

    So the Braves give Donaldson $23M but wouldn't give Harper $30M? Makes sense...If you're an idiot.

    Doubt Harper was signing a one-year or short-term deal.

    Lol 1 year vs. 10 years and 7 million less? Yeah, give me Donaldson all day. This is a solid signing.

    It's a huge overpay for a player that might not even play 100 games.
