It now rest with us.
As long as the dollors are in line with his value, I don't see the harm in getting some cost security for our assets.
And to those how thing we overpayed fro Arroyo? Did you see what guys like Meche, Lilly etc. were getting last year?
Just because other teams jumped off a cliff this off-season doesn't mean we should follow. We already had Arroyo signed for a few years. I think we should have waited to make sure he proved his value over a larger sample size. His 2006 season, by all accounts, was due to a lot of luck with BABIP. I liked the Harang signing a great deal, I just thought we jumped the gun with Arroyo.
