he knows that he'll get paid either way. so you aren't going to convince him to stay with an extra $1 mil. you'll convince him to stay by making him believe that he can win here with this team...

and i also think that hank is smart enough to realize that while he can demand a max deal and he would most likely get it. making any team pay him $10-12 mil/year is counterproductive toward the goal of winning and putting a better team in front of him.

hank seemed really down on the team during the playoffs and i think wants to see changes
I think its a little bit of both. But you got to remember the guy has expensive taste. Money is as much of a priority as winning is I would assume.
