Well, what else are they going to do? Sit out the whole year? OK, fine. It's not like that's going to improve their position one bit; they'll just lose out on a year of salary and wind up in essentially the same position anyway when they try to negotiate their big-money deal with someone in 2011. Just a bluff by the agents that everyone ought to be smart enough to call.

Even if Miller held out from a high RFA offer, I'd just take that as a sign that his agent was demanding a diva contract that we probably couldn't afford anyway, so it's time to forget about him and face the fact that he's gone. No one is irreplaceable.
