that might be an exaggeration but i don't think i'd give one guy an arbitration award based on the other. hartnell at a year or two less and $3.5M is very fair.

two things strike me in this post, if people are not happy with turco, who would you be happy with? nabokov or bust? turco in a reduced role--like any starter will have with leighton making $1.5M--would be pretty solid, i think he is just wearing down to where he cannot start 65+ games is all. the other is the readiness to dump carle, the guy was good for us last year and yet some fans are just as eager to move him as last offseason. if he were on the open market right today he'd be getting a RAISE and over 5-7 years.
