Randy Wolf thinks very highly of his own services.

I bet Randy Wolf wakes up in the morning, takes a shower, clears the steam off the mirror with his hand...and then slams his head into it repeatedly. Regard Ken Rosenthal:

Wolf, according to multiple sources, declined to accept a three-year, $28.5 million offer to return to the Astros — an offer that was rescinded early in the offseason. The veteran lefty could end up with the Dodgers if the Mets sign Perez, but he is unlikely to command an average salary of $9.5 million from either team ...

Granted, I don't think there's a big difference between $8 million and $9.5 million. If you're having trouble meeting expenses at $8 million a year, you've got larger issues. But still, even though the Astros rescinded the offer, he still had time to turn it down. Dude, bummer.
