    But without the trade advantages that free agency delivers. There were some quality players traded this year ahead of them becoming free agents, but in most cases the acquiring club paid top draft pick dollar at the trade table. This may just be a one-off, or maybe we're seeing the next cycle of free agency, indicating it may become harder to quickly rejuvenate your list by acquiring free agents at no cost.

    I listened to a bit of trade radio too and agree McClure was underwhelming. He overreacted over Fremantle's initial announcement it was pulling out of the race for Hogan. He had no real insight, exaggerated; mostly half-baked supposition.
