i don't see how he can turn this down. If his agent was truthful about there being a hometown discount, this should seal the deal.

I think it will take more than 12 mil a year to land Aramis. I mean if J.D. Drew thinks he can get at least 11 mil then Aramis who plays a more premium position and provides more production should get a tleast 15 mil per year. I would think that there is a big market for Aramis.

Pretty darn fair offer to Aramis. He might be able to get more, but not much more IMO. 15 million seems to be a little too much, however 13 seems within the realm of possibility. I'd think he takes this deal.

Whoops my bad that offer is for 14 mil per year, that is a solid offer. Is it enough? I don't know.

Wow Aramis is going for 14M+??? No wonder JD opted out of his contract. Does everyone need to be reminded that Arod is getting 16M/yr from the Yanks?

This is going to be one hell of an expensive off season for MLB teams.
