I'd offer him a 2-year $20M extension and see if he goes for it. Remind him that he's got a good team around him and see if he has any interest in a hometown discount. I'm sure he'll gripe about only 2 years though.
I'd be willing to wait on Valaika if Phillips was willing to take that. But, beyond that, it just doesn't make sense.
