Anywhere from $1.6-2 million would be acceptable for the team, and you'd think acceptable for Comrie. Then he puts up his #'s, get a nice long deal after this season and away we go. Too bad they didn't sign before camp though, looked to me like Comrie was really ready for this season.
It's not the base that is the biggest problem. The problem is Comrie wants something similar to what he got last year (with easy bonuses) or a 2+ contract. Comrie plain and simple isn't worth two mllion bucks. If you give him Two at age 23, what do you give him at age 25? then 28? Comrie is to un-proven and coming of to poor of a year to make the demands he is making.
