Stupid Question About Lieber

Ca$hman said that he didn't want to pick up Lieber's option because $8 million is too much, but he hopes to resign him to a two-year deal. Reports indicate that the Junkees are going to offer a two-year deal worth $12 million, or put another way, $6 million a year for two years.

So why didn't the Junkees just offer him another year at $4 million? If Lieber's willing to accept $12 million over two years, pick up his $8 million option, add $4 million for '06, and your total is... $12 million! The same you want to offer him anyway!

Oh, I hope I see him in a Red Sox uniform come '05... And nobody's taking Posada, so forget about Varitek...
