If he's willing to take a four year deal, sure throw money at him. But if he wants the security of a retirement contract, he better be willing to take a discount.
I agree 100% with this. This organization has issues with throwing crazy contracts around though.
In 8 years, I guarantee Hank wont be Nearly as good anymore. And the thought of that player making 7-8+ million dollars is absurd.
