Nick: I don’t care what it takes. I want Robinson on my team next year.

Jamie: He’ll be a free agent and he’ll be fielding a lot of offers. I don’t know if we can make him an attractive enough deal.

Nick: We’ll offer him a signing bonus. That should sweeten the deal.

Jamie: I’m afraid that may not be enough. Don’t forget that he was a first-round pick in the draft.

Nick: Then we’ll give him a no-trade clause. With that, he’ll be calling the shots and won’t have to worry about being traded to a team he doesn’t want to be on. He should be happy with that.

Jamie: I don’t know. His agent expects a lot of competing offers. We’ll have to pull out all the stops if we want to land him.

Nick: Then we’ll do it. We won’t be bested by any other team.

Jamie: Like last year.

Nick: Last year? Don’t remind me of last year!
