Santana Declines Deal?

According to a couple of different sources (including the impeccable, Santana has declined a 2-year extension on his current deal which expires after the 2008 season.  It's reported the extension offer was worth $18,000,000 per season.

My question is this:  Is two years/$36 million enough to keep the best pitcher in the game today?  Even if it is just a rumor and this was never offered, what's a 2-year extension for Johan Santana worth?

UPDATE (4/12): This story has been refuted by Santana. Check the article out here.
