Would you pay that much for him as a GM?
No way he is worth that kind of coin. But he wouldn't get a 5 year deal out of arbitration. He would get a one year deal somewhere close to fair market value.
If he declines arbitration because he wants to sign a 5 year deal somewhere else - then the braves get a compensation draft pick from the team that signs him.
