What is the benefit, of doing nothing, when guys on one year deals have helped you go from 7-9 to 12-4, and you essentially piss on their effort by saying see ya later. We need to create an atmosphere where guys want to be, and where a person is valued and the team is not a group of mercs. I am disappointed, and next year we will not be .500, but at least Greg got paid.

Gettleman is right - Carolina cannot afford to re-sign these guys. Mike Mitchell is going to get a nice fat contract somewhere else - and he earned it. Same for Ted Ginn. That's not to say they can't find some cheap prove-it type FA's that could come in and do the same thing. A hungry player is a better player.
