What kind of money/contract length do you think they'd bring in the open market as URFA...just an interesting hypothetical...add your thoughts on others if you'd like...

Dunn - 4 years, $50 mil
Kearns - 2 years, $9 mil, 3rd year option at $6....overpriced
Harang - 4 years, $24 million....well worth it
Lopez - not really sure...does he stay at SS? 3 years, $14 million??

Dunn would easily get at least 12 million per year.

Kearns would probably get the standard 3 million per year contract for one year that decent journeymen (like Reggie Sanders) get. He's just not that good, and has a poor track record. I can't see a bidding war for him.

Harang would probably get at least 9 million per year. Look at what Byrd and worse guys got last year.

Lopez is hard to peg down. A lot would depend on how strong he finishes this year. A strong finish could get him 10 million per year. A weak finish knocks him down to 5-6 million per year.
