Question 7 Years / $17,000,000 For Holliday

The Cardinals have committed through 2016 to 30 year old Matt Holliday. 7 long years - full no trade contract. They may have bought their albatross.

http://stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/new...=.jsp&c_id=stl

" ... Finalization of the deal is pending a physical exam. The Cardinals confirmed in a statement that an agreement is in place, however. The club said that a formal announcement regarding Holliday will come within the next 48 hours. Boras confirmed that the guaranteed value of the seven-year contract is worth an even $17 million per year, including a full no-trade clause. The latter provision tends to be a major point of emphasis for Boras.... "


And now they have to sign Pujols!

there was talk on the MLB network about how if they signed a big payday contract for Holliday that they may end up having problems coming up with the cash that will be required to sign Pujols when it was time. Now, let a girl dream here... wouldn't it be such a pretty sight to have Pujols in pinstripes on the North Side of Chi-town to replace DeeLee when he was gone? LOL

At least, they didn't give him 300 billion dollars like somebody on the north side that hasn't really lived up to his contract.

even if the cards have 45 million tied up in 2 players, they get a ton out of the mediocre talent they have. Id LOVE to have Pujols, he is by far the best player in the game today
