Lots of rumors swirling right now that the Cards are close to signing Matt Holliday. I've heard anywhere from 5 years, 80 mil to 8 for 140 mil. I certainly hope it's closer to the former, but I can't imagine Boras settling for a contract less than 100 mil in total. Bay signing with the Mets seems to have set things in the motion as it both set the market and eliminated a potential major bidder. My personal preference would be six years, 102 million (17.5 per year). Anything more, and I think we just overbidding against ourselves. We'll see what happens in the coming days though.
