NOTE: I just thought of something. If you add Madson at $10M+ a season, it is really going to bounce up Marshall's asking price. I'd rather have Marshall, so I'd probably offer him the deal first.
5 yrs/$44M = $8.8M per year by my calculator.
But you're saying he might take......3 yrs/$33M = $11M per year? Gee, you think?
I don't get your comments. Was that a typo on the $44M?
