There is nothing wrong with that, when the player hasn't proven squat. But when a player has proven some things and is already playing great, and doesn't want a short term deal, then there's nothing wrong with giving him the bigger bucks now (although cheaper than what it would cost you in 2years). Especially if the other option is keeping him at home.

But as I said yesterday after the hot stove, I'm starting to think PK isn't necessarily against signing a 2year deal. If what they said was true, then it's more about the dollars.
