Lewis and Fletcher are pretty much the same player at this point in their careers.

Fletcher could get between 3/20 and (a backloaded) 3/25 on the open market. I don't think he's going to get $9 mil a year, but he probably can do better elsewhere if he's really just going to look for the biggest contract he can find.

You might be right on that.

7 million a year is fine, for a Pro-Bowl MLB. Obviously you wouldn't guarantee the three years -- hard to imagine the ageless wonder playing out the contract at this level.

They need to keep London! This guy is a team player and a leader of this team. Losing him would be a HUGE loss!

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

Guys like London bring so many intangibles to the field. We just don't have anyone else like him to fill those shoes.

Re: London Prepared to Leave (If No Deal)

i'd like to keep him, but no one is irreplaceable. for as good as some people like to think he is, it didn't translate in the W-L column.

I wouldn't go above 3/20.

No way in hell would he get that on the open market. He'll be 37 this May. The only reason Ray is getting paid the type of salary he is is because he signed his contract back in 2009, and the fact he's been drafted and with the Ravens his whole career. He's in part of the reason why they have a Super Bowl trophy.

No, not IMHO. To those who say London is no where near Ray-Ray kinda money...try to argue the Ravens will miss Lewis more than our Skins will London? Oh...you say Lewis is surrounded by more talent? Yep, sure is...now who's more valuable to his team?

So you pay the man unless you have a plan to upgrade all the talent around London in one season if he walks?
