I'll say no higher that $3M for Pence. Super 2. And, Tal Smith is good at this stuff. Legendary.
Peanut agrees (check the comments of that Kemp/Pence post), and says Ethier's 08-offseason deal is more appropriate. Let's check them out:
|Ethier (in '08)||525||.305/.375/.510||88:59||76-106||132||6-9|
So it seems as though I should stand corrected. Kemp had a better year, finished 10th in the MVP balloting, won a Gold Glove and a Silver Slugger. I'll go ahead and back off the "Hunter gets $5m" thought process, and bring it back down to $3m (you don't argue with the Biz of Baseball).
