well obviously if he gets the rookie max he can only match it. but slats could also give him more bonuses or something. what i was thinking was that nobody would offer him the max, unless they got into a bidding war, which i doubt would happen. i agree with you that if sather was trying to hardball me i'd probably give him the stiff, but who knows.
