Mets to announce Bay signing next week?

WFAN's Mike Francesa says the Mets will announce a Jason Bay signing early next week, if his physical checks out. Francesa's report also included previously-known info about Bengie Molina seeking three years and the Mets offering one plus a vesting option.

It's a strange way for news of a major agreement to break, though Francesa did not use the word "agreement." It's also strange that Francesa would sit on this news for a full day and make the announcement with no enthusiasm.

D'Backs near deal with 2B Kelly Johnson for 1-year

The Diamondbacks are nearing an agreement with free agent second baseman Kelly Johnson , reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. Piecoro believes the D'Backs made a one-year, $2MM offer over a week ago. He notes that a one-year deal wouldzallow the D'Backszto potentially keep Johnson for 2011 as an arbitration-eligible player.z Piecoro also adds that signing Johnson could make Augie Ojeda expendable.

Boras has sought an eight-year deal for Holliday and it is believed the Cardinals' offer could be worth up to eight years, giving it the potential to be the largest offer in club history.


Joe Strauss also reported on the offer 2 weeks ago

General manager John Mozeliak and agent Scott Boras revisited the framework of the Cardinals' lengthy proposal first tendered last Wednesday. Though both parties refuse to discuss details, the deal is worth around $16 million a season, making it easily the most lucrative deal ever offered by the Cardinals.


Jesus.....If that doesnt do it, then Boras has lost his mind...

I think I'm more horrified at the thought of Holliday in 8 years than the fact that he'll end up making more than Pujols. This is the worst idea I've ever heard. That's an A-Rod/Torii Hunter/Johan Santana type contract. Holliday will be lucky to keep his a.ss off the bench two years from now. This is a bad deal and Boras did this on purpose. If this deal goes down, Cards lost.

I heard on ESPN Radio, that Boras wanted f**king 23 Million per yr for 8 yrs....Plus, if the ownership group can grow some balls, its very possible that they have budgeted enough to re-up Pujols. Now I've heard from sources, that it was more like the offer was 5 years with those 5 being at below $16M per with three vesting option years that were likely for more than $16M per. So, it averaged out to 8 years $16M per, but the vesting could have depended on PA in year 5 or something, meaning they Cards could get out of the contract if they wanted to.

If that is the case, it means the offer is more like 5 years $75M before the options

Don't worry Cards fans. Pujols has been promised his contract will be taken care of, same way the Twins will take care of Joe Mauer.

Pujols next contract = 26-30MM a year for atleast 6-7 more years.

Alot of years and money but that's still under market value for Albert.

Cards should pick up Vlad Guerrero and you'd pretty much get the same player for much cheaper.

Pujols will get an A-Rod contract. Should be ten years.

Its just unfair that 1 persons salary could exceed the payroll of another team. They really need to do something about that.

Anything less than 35HR's and 120RBI's will be a huge dissapointment. He'll be getting booed before the summer.
