To be serious about it, obviously we would have re-signed him regardless of whether he took a discount or not, but it's not everyday you have a franchise player that will actually take less money for himself in his prime years to field a better team as a whole. He atleast deserves some recognition for doing that.

At the time it was considered a nice deal for both parties. Santana:

* Exchanged greater potential future earnings for guaranteed money.
* Sold arbitration years in which he couldn't have tested the market anyway.
* Signed his contract before MLB was as well off as they are now financially.

Now that MLB is making more money internationally and doing quite with MLBAM and those increased revenues are trickling down and causing salary inflation, Santana's deal is a bargain... but did the Twins see that coming in advance? I doubt it.
