    Cardinals offer Holliday 6yr 96 million?

    St. Louis Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt recently denied that the club has made left fielder Matt Holliday an offer; however, there are suggestions that the Cardinals discussed a 6-year, $96 million framework with Holliday's agent, Scott Boras, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
    Boras had been saying he expected to get something closer to Mark Teixeira's most recent contract, which is worth $180 million over eight years.
    The Cardinals need a power-hitting presence behind Albert Pujols, and Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said during the regular season that re-signing Holliday would be an offseason priority.
    Holliday hit .353 for the Cardinals in 63 games this season, with 13 home runs, 55 RBIs and a .604 slugging percentage

    $96MM, that's a slap in the face - who can live off only $96 million these days?

    Hey Matt, if you catch a fly ball in game 2, that's a $120MM offer.

    No way that happens cards have never dropped that much on a single player...
    And I dont see how they could also afford pujols, carpenter, and wainright which are all more valuable than Holliday but I would love to see them 4 together for a long time

    I'm insulted on his behalf just hearing about it. The guy has a family to feed, or will someday, or something. Why not just pay him minimum wage while they're at it?!?!?!?!?!!

    Re: Cardinals offer Holliday 6yr 96 million?

    96 million for 6 years is a slap in the face when you consider what Texiera got last year.

    Re: Cardinals offer Holliday 6yr 96 million?

    Scott Boras said on Sunday that the Cardinals have not made any proposals in an effort to retain Matt Holliday, and Heyman says "the chances for Holliday to remain a Cardinal look slim at this point."

    The Mets, Giants, Braves, Cubs, Mariners, and Yankees could also be interested in Holliday and/or Bay.
    The Mets are believed to have Holliday higher on their wish list than Bay, and are also expected to pursue Randy Wolf.

    Re: Cardinals offer Holliday 6yr 96 million?

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak is lowering expectations for this week even though his team has plenty of issues to address this offseason, according to Joe Strauss The St. Louis Post Dispatch.
    "I'd say the chances of us making anything happen there is very small," said Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak, a central mover during last November's weeklong meeting at Dana Point, Calif. "My expectation is that this will be much more about MLB business."
    Mozeliak also said he believes that rookie David Freese should get first crack at the third base job next year, although the team publicly remains interested in Mark DeRosa. He also indicated the team plans to promote a young pitcher to fill one of the rotation spots vacated by John Smoltz and Joel Pineiro, while seeking a "short-term veteran" for the other.
    Strauss mentions that if the team believes it can retain Matt Holliday for $17MM annually, they're likely to be disappointed because Scott Boras "is believed committed to finding a far more lucrative deal for Holliday than the eight-year, $136 million deal left fielder Alfonso Soriano accepted to sign with the Chicago Cubs in November 2006
