Fake Impasse To Save Tax Dollars?

Apparently, the Red Sox are simply delaying the announcement of A-Gon's contract extension to avoid a hit on the luxury tax in 2011 (as outlined by Alex Speier of WEEI). The parameters are reportedly 7 years beyond next year at about $23 million per year. Was this whole ruse really necessary? It makes the Sox look bad and puts fans through the ringer for no good reason.
