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?
Well he wouldn't necessarily be the starter here. We don't know how his level of play is for the time being, for all we know Mason could be better at this point. I realize what he thinks he is worth but I would pass and let some other team pay $4 Mill a year to find out he doesn't have it anymore.
