Cardinals Agree On 7 Year Deal With Matt Holliday
The dominoes are all starting to fall now…
Jon Heyman of SI.com,is now reporting that free agent outfielder, Matt Holliday has agreed to a seven-year, $120 million contract with the St. Louis Cardinals.
The deal includes a full no trade clause as most Scott Boras contracts do.
Holliday batted .353 with 13 home runs and 55 RBIs in 63 games with the Cardinals after being acquired in a July trade from the Oakland Athletics.
The Cardinals increased their original offer that was reported to be $112 million for seven years, and the deal has an option for an eighth year.
Including the options, Jason Bay will be 35 at the end of his deal with the Mets, while Holliday will be 37.
I’m looking forward to reading all the Holliday got overpaid posts and articles in the next few days. Oh wait… there won’t be any because he didn’t sign with the Mets…
