The Associated Press reported that Molina's contract is worth a guaranteed $15.5 million. According to the AP, Molina receives a $250,000 signing bonus, $1.75 million in 2008, $3.25 million in 2009, $4.25 million in 2010 and $5.25 million 2011. Molina's club option is worth $7 million with a buyout at $750,000.
Not too bad for the best defensive catcher in baseball. $7 million a year seems a bit ridiculous but at least it is an option. I hope Anderson gets moved to 2B now that Yadi is signed.

That option's a little steep, but a good deal overall. There are enough issues with this team; we don't need to be hunting for a new backstop.

Good point. How about your Astros? How's their catcher situation looking?

Lol, "my" Astros. I used to have the avatar because I'm a Roy Oswalt fan.

It is funny how the $7 million option seemed over the top then and seems cheap now.
Yadi has really come into his own and I'm glad to see the Cards picking up his option.

Plus I wanted an excuse to post the crying bird :-D
