We will likely have to pay that for Clarkson. Especially if he hits UFA, and Burke gets out his checkbook. Zubrus is an aging player who will be 35. $2.5 is enough for him. We could get a player slightly younger than Zubrus who's a similar player for that. $2.5 to me might be a little more than I'd wanna see, but since he's been great for us at his role I'd give him that. We can't afford to overpay him especially like what Salvador got, and I love Sal too, just as I love Zubrus, and wanna keep him, but not at overpayment.
Especially if his game slows down a little. Early last season people were saying what Zubrus is getting paid is too much. I certainly was not one of them. I promise you won't want him at the same as what he's getting now. People were begging for Zubrus to be waived back when we signed Kovy. Not saying you were, and neither was I, but if he is overpaid, then I'm sure quite a few others will feel the same as me.
