You think? Rossi money?

He should take it but make it a one year deal. Lots of very confident athletes do one year deals on poor teams when they are emerging. Teams want to sign them for longer terms, but the confident ones say no. They want a mega contract the next year, and are willing to risk a bad season or injury. I love those guys and Cal is clearly emerging. To my eyes, he is showing quite a bit more speed than Ben Spies was. Yamaha and Honda will still covet him if he stays healthy. I vote for him to finally get a payday.

It is a risk, but we all know Cal relishes the risky end of things. In 3 years he may be driving a cab, but I am willing to bet on him. He's a different fellow from the rest. Sort of a Max story without the acid. There is no better than that!
