Looks like a done deal
Pretty much official that Holliday will re-sign this week. I got the annual figure about right at 17.5 mil per, but the deal has an extra year added onto it compared to what I would like at seven. Hard to predict what a player will be like even two years from now, much less seven, but oh well. I don't love the terms of the deal, but don't hate them either. I think in a better economy, certainly Holliday would'be gotten more, so I suppose you'd have to count us a little lucky in the end. It will be interesting to see whom the Cards get the to fill-in the infield now. The rest of the team seems pretty set, though I guess maybe a right-handed reliever might be looked at as well.
