The Cardinals have offered free agent left fielder Matt Holliday an eight-year contract worth close to $130 million, according to a published report.

The Mets made an offer to Bay last week, believed to be for four years, $65 million. The Yankees are not believed to have made an offer.

The report says Bay does have a five-year offer on the table.

Gotta admit... That's more than I thought the Cards would offer.

That is a lot, but it is probably not really overpaying. I hate the length though.

That's what she said. But seriously, Boras' comparisons of Holliday to Teixeira must've really hit home.

I was thinking Pujols must really like Matt.

That's a lot of money for a guy who has been known to make some big errors... :-D

i really don't see anyways that deal gets topped, especially with the red sox out of the running now. the cards probably went higher than they had to.

:-D

I keep hearing (ever since spring training in fact) that Holliday and his dad REALLY want him to play for the Yankees.

I think if the Yankees match St Louis' dollar amount, the Cardinals will be SOL. (In my professional opinion, of course) :-b

This might even come down to who gives the no-trade clause, like Teixiera last year. :-?

If they give Holliday that, how much are they going to end up offering Pujols?
