As much as I hate the guy he's a great player and will be one of the biggest free agents next off season unless the Reds give him a nice five or six year deal
He's one of the best, if not the best, second basemen in baseball. He's going to command some dollars.
Don't worry.. He'll be a Cardinal in a few years, so, you won't have to put up with his antics for too much longer...
I agree, there is NO way he signs for as little as is suggested in this thread. He probably has about 3-4 solid years left in him before he starts his decline. Why would he sign for less than he's making now?!
