If you want to throw one more pitcher (with very, very similar stats to both of those guys) into that mix, let's look at fellow FA Joe Saunders:
78-65 Career, 31 Years Old
162 Avgs: 14-12 4.15 ERA 209 IP 26 HR 119 K 64 BB 1.36 WHIP
It'll be very interesting to see what he gets this off season to see just how much the Cubs would be overpaying (if this 4/$52M is accurate/true) and as a closer guide to what Floyd might/could get.
