Melvin vs Hardy poll

There has been alot of back and forth about this situation in various threads. The two issues are should Melvin leave Hardy down long enough to add an extra arbitration year on and if so what should happen to Melvin and the Brewers reputation if this was allowed to happen. I am in favor of him leaving Hardy down so I will ask the question about the later part. What should happen if Melvin leaves him down long enough.
