I believe the message that they really want to stay under the luxury tax threshhold this year and reset the penalties. I don't see them signing Kimbrel. They have a little bit of wiggle room for the deadline to add pro-rated salary.

Curious if you know:

1) how would renegotiating and signing extensions with Zim and Scherzer impact the threshold?

2) If we signed Rendon on March 29, would that impact this year's competitive balance threshold calculation?

Suppose we signed Scherzer to a one-year extension at $26MM (so he has 4 years, $116MM left instead of 3 years at $30MM AAV) and extended RZ 2 years so his instead of owing $20MM for 2019 (assuming option declined) we owe him $30MM from 2019 to 2021.
