I don't know what this is supposed to mean. My point was that people who think Girardi will take a small salary are most likely out to lunch given what other, lesser players got on the open market. Well, I thought that was the case until this happened:

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 31s
Seidenberg extension in Boston. 4 years, $16 million. No-trade clause included. #TSN

That's a steal for Boston. Girardi taking a 5 year, $25M contract would be ideal, IMO, and Seidenberg is a good comparable.

I don't disagree. I feel the same way.
