Some are saying MB can't cave in and all that but if he signs PK to something like a 5yr/25M, both sides come out looking great imo. That contract would not be too long and even look like a fantastic deal when PK hits his prime. Instead, things are going to get bitter and it will be more difficult to integrate PK back with the team. What's the upside for MB here? I don't get it. I never thought I would say that but this is the kind of situation where Gainey would have taken a long walk with PK instead of this type of cold war between the two sides.
