How big an offer will teams seriously give him?
I can't see anyone paying more then $10 million maximum - and will that be "worth Barry's while" for all the bull he is probably going to get (as usual).
Playing for Oakland for around $7 million (which would be great , go Oakland) - but has he got enough money where all the annoyance is not worth it?

Yes , you are right. He is still awesome with .497 OBP and .590 SLG.
But I'm thinking that teams would be wary of someone who is 43 , health-wise and the inevitable skill slide that they have at that age.
I don't think anyone would be silly enough (outside the Yankees , who seem to think it is a race to spend all their cash) to risk more then $10 million on someone that old.
