How many guys do you have on the cheap side? You listed Webb, Willis, and Kolb for a total of $4. If you have a couple more guys like that, then I'd consider keeping him at $52 for 2 years. If that salary is going to handicap you, then there's no way I'd hang on to him. Probably just rebid and see what happens.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
