I would love it if we could lock up Kreider long term. Give him 6 years @ 3.5 per year. We can easily afford it now, especially if we trade Cally and/or Girardi, and it will be a huge bargain down the road.
underline: concur, we should make every effort in that regard.

bold: Would suggest the max; correct me if I'm wrong but what is max term? Isn't it like 8, 9 for your own? or is that 7 and 8?
Any hoo, would be happy to get a good start number and bump him up half a mil TO 600k PER for EACH YEAR in that extended period.
