I'm posing this as a question. And I'm looking for your thoughts. To be honest, as of late, when I use declarative statements regarding contract renegotiation, some of you freak out a bit. So that said, this is something I've thought about more than once this week, and I'm hoping we can get some dialogue going.

As I'm sure you all know, Dunta Robinson just tweaked his contract last off-season. He did it for the "good of the team," but he also got his. He's owed $8 million in base salary in 2013. If you're keeping score, that's a lot, relatively speaking. He will likely be the second-best paid player on the team.
