    No Hunter got the standard aging All-star contract, Ludwick will get around 60% of that deal unless some big money teams loses out on guys they want and panic.

    To add to what you are saying here, Hunter also getting rewarded for his consistency. His average (other than an uptick last season) and OBP have stayed consistent for nearly 10 years. Teams will (and should) show a bit of skepticism toward Ludwick since the entirety of his value is based on one bounce back year.

    Hunter's defense is about 100 times better than Ludwick.

    I've said it before, I will say it again... Pass on Ludwick... Let someone else pay him 9 Million per year for 3 Years...

    I mean, you'd be better off paying Bourn 15 Million a year for 5 years, that paying Ludwick 9 Million a year for 3 years... It is that simple.

    Since Melky got 2 years at $8M per, I don't see Ludwick getting 3 years at $9M per.

    All it takes is 1 team to make a mistake, but Ludwick shouldn't get more than $7m per year on a 3 years contract. If the Reds can re-sign him for around that it might be worth it. Just a weak set of LF free agents this year.
