Won't happen. McD will absolutely get more. McD will likely get a longer term contract, which will drive the average up. McD is also arbitration eligible. MDZ is not. Can you see any arbitrator giving McD less than 4 mil on a 1 or 2 year deal?

McD is much more proven than MDZ is. If McD has another good year, Sather will have to give him term. MDZ will come in at under 3 mil per year. If McD is signed for anything under 4 mil per year, that will be a huge win for Sather.
