I voted no because we don't really need the expiring contracts. I really, really doubt we'll be a player for any big name FA next summer, and even if we would, we can always amnesty Jose.

So the choice is between a late draft pick this summer (in a deep draft, so more valuable than usual), and the chance of an even better package next season. By keeping him, we can also increase our ability to put together a trade package for a disgruntled star. As unlikely as that is, it's still our best chance of ever getting an all-star to come here without overpaying through the nose.
