It's always nice to imagine a smaller cap hit, but I think you guys are dreaming. There is going to be some competition for his services, I imagine.

You'e basically saying you wouldn't give Tim Thomas veteran starter money, let alone good starter money. You're already getting a break on the term (and AAV) due to his age/absence. Retreating from $4 M is really pushing it, in my opinion. Look at what other guys without a quarter of the credentials are making. I would be ecstatic if they could shave anything off of 2 years/$8 M and still get him.

Edit: You guys realize I was talking $8 M total, not per year right?
