It doesn't work like that because a million other scenarios could happen between now and then.
I think we have a chance to win this division next year, and adding Jackson will help that goal without blocking prospects or giving up valuable talent.
then you believe Glass is a liar, which is fine, a lot of Royals fans have the same mindset. Its a fair assumption because he hasn't exactly proven that he'll lose money in a year, yet. If every dollar of profit in each fiscal year is going to be spent on upgrading him to the suite level in a Mediterranean island next winter, then it absolutely makes sense to pressure Glass to spend every dime, every year.
I just happen to think he's serious about using money saved now to accelerate to a Twins-level payroll or higher when the time comes
