The closer a player gets to UFA the price usually goes up.

I'd rather sign a guy now at 3 years 10.5 mil than wait and pay him 4 years 16 mil because UFA is right around the corner.

DD was going to be a RFA not a UFA(though he had arbitration rights which is inflationary). In hindsight MB would have waited and signed a shorter deal or gone to arbitration...but hindsight is always 20-20.
