I think the cost to resign him is way more than what his probable value to the team is.
He's not like Adam Jones this year who forced their hand. If he has an Adam Jones breakout year, then, yeah, you pay what he needs. But if he's hitting sub .250, minimal numbers, you sell.
He's a catcher. A elite defensive catcher. High end hitting from your catcher is a bonus, not an expectation. If he was a first baseman, you might have a point.
Not only that, you're advocating selling low on a player with elite potential.
