No need to decide yet. It would be prudent to let the market develop to a degree, see who the alternatives are, what they cost, and THEN see how much sense another year of JT @ 15M makes. Of course we could miss the boat, but I'd think there might be other ways to fill his shoes, when all we really need is to replace his offense. I'm more interested to see if Chaim might have some $ to spend and could make a play for someone younger, but I'll admit I haven't studied next years free agents yet.Why wouldn't something similar to the $15M his player option is worth be good enough to hang on to him for another year?
