Re: Buyer Beware: Potentially Underpaid and Overpaid FA's
Well I put Schmidt on the potentially underpaid list b/c compared to like 6 years 90-100M for Zito, 4 yr. 48M looks a lot more realistic for Schmidt. I could personally see him fetching 13M a year but still 3-4M less than Zito. He's older but really the past few years has been just as good and even more dominant recently (both had bad years recently with Zito's 2004 and Schmidt's 2005). I mean his age labels him as a risk but because of that he's not asking for like a 6-7 year deal like Zito.
