... The big challenge for Mozeliak and other GMs is the universal wealth in MLB. The shared revenue is huge. Every team can afford to keep its elite players a least into the early stages of their free agency years. The Giancarlo Stantons aren't hitting the market. The Cardinals exploited the low-budget A's for Holliday, who wasn't going to stay in Oakland, and they lucked out when the Angels and Phillies soured on Jim Edmonds and Scott Rolen respectively. Mozeliak would love to see such opportunities arise again, but I believe they will be far less prevalent.
