Padres in on Joaquin Benoit?

MLB Trade Rumors is currently reporting that the Pads have a two year offer for righty reliever J Benoit with an option for a 3rd year. As Benoit was reportedly asking for $7-10M per year, this seems to make absolutely no sense. Paying for a couple extra years of team control on Benoit rather than just keeping/extending Gregerson seems like the absolute opposite of what a small market team like our Padres are used to doing. Is Benoit at 36 years old really worth $14-30M, especially to a Padres team that is still at least a big bat away from truly contending in the NL West. What gives? Any opinions on this scuttlebutt would be greatly appreciated. Cheers! P.S Sorry for not including links to MLBTR, I'm on a cell phone.
