1= the contract in general......yes , the prices are out of sight. however i remember when i bought my first car, gas was 69 cents a gallon(around 1985). now we are at 2.15+ . sometimes sliding down a few cents only going back several cents later. will we ever see the 69 cents again ? i doubt it.
Yeah....they say the "cost of living" thing.
So as far as the contracts.. but till something changes, to get the type A free agent , we will have to pay it or set on the sidelines.
2= Zito....well he is a Type A free agent in my opinion.
However, it would not surprise me in the least for Harang to have a better ERA this upcoming season.
so would zito be worth it ? he is the best out there right now.
Main point= lock up Harang, wayne k. The prices are up there now and they are only going higher.
because of injury history...if Harang was on the market today...i would want him over schmidt. Give him a nice raise and keep him a Red.
