Flaherty proving why the Cardinals can shove it when it comes to trying to ink him cheaply.

They docked 10k from Flaherty simply because he was renewed instead of agreeing. Already off to a rocky start on keeping him long term.

Eh, if they show up with the right $$$ offer on an extension, bygones will be bygones. Wouldn't surprise me at all if that happens sometime this year.

A system which the Cards prefer. As evidenced.

Quote:
“It’s nothing on the Cardinals. They play within what the system is,” Flaherty said. “Their process is great and it makes sense, but in the grand scheme of things the system itself that everybody plays under just isn’t — it’s not a great system for everybody.

“The system as a whole is not great.”


Quote:
Players with less than three years of service time are not eligible for arbitration and have no leverage unless they explore multi-year deals. Jose Martinez did that earlier this spring and signed a two-year contract.

The renewal means Hicks and Flaherty did not agree to their value, and did not sign contracts.

The Cardinals had gone more than a decade without renewing a player until last spring when they imposed a salary on outfielder Tommy Pham.

Another player confirming the system is the problem, not the Cardinals.

Paying him 10K less because he wouldn't sign the offer is the Cardinals choice.
