I'll see what we get out of them next year. Hopefully that's a full season together and a full season with a triplet, whether that's Burrows or not. I'm not predicting a Ross with their name on it, but I'm sure there's life in those two yet.
Cap space would be nice, but I'm not going to bitch about the 7 per (ask me again in 2 years) - they've been a bargain almost all of their time here and now they're collecting.
