It's not that it only matters if we sign a player who received a QA, it's that we've removed ourselves from the market. An unforced error. It's also a $2.5M cash loss, which we know the Lerners won't like, $1.5M in fees and $1M in missed revenue sharing.
We've removed ourselves from the market because we are going to make a decision on a big free agent by whether we are going to have to give up our 5th best draft pick or not?   And last year doesn't affect whether we get comp for Harper.  That will be based on this upcoming year's CBT status.  And the difference in international signing money penalty is only 500,000 vs 1,000,000 and that's only if we sign a qualified free agent.
