The problem with looking at the year he had two years ago, is that you have to look at the year he had before AND after that, and realize that we've committed to him for another year longer than that total sample. Will it be worth it if we only get 1 of those years out of the next 4? Is there reason to believe we're going to get THAT Prust at least 2 of the next 4 years, and will that be worth it?

I like the Prust addition in its essence, but the money and term might have made me look around a bit longer during the off season for something similar, cheaper, requiring less commitment, that's all. It's hardly a franchise crippling deal though, so whatever, really.
