Yadi's a free agent

Post by mikechamp »

Yadi is seeking a 2-year deal. That seems reasonable to me.
Cardinals icon Yadier Molina saw his three-year, $60MM contract expire at season’s end, which could potentially send him into the open market for the first time in his 17-year big league career. There’s sure to be mutual interest in extending the relationship, but agent Melvin Roman tells MLB Network’s Jon Heyman that his client is seeking a two-year deal (audio link to Heyman’s Big Time Baseball Podcast with Tony Gwynn Jr.; Molina talk begins at 34:30).

Give Yadi 2 years at $25mm and call it a day.

Technically, I didn't think he became a free agent until Monday. Don't the Cards have a 5-day window?

How about 2yrs $10mil, he already got his legacy contract.

Then be prepared to lose him, which may be OK with you.

I want to keep him, and not just for legacy reasons.

Fair enough, I guess I'm ready to see what the young talent can do, especially considering our payroll constraints and an aging catcher.

I was wrong. He is a free agent, as is Wainwright. Here is the current list, from MLBPA:

Dude's a future hall of famer and Cards legend, the least we can do is give him his own topic.

Pay him.

We're in a dry fart era. One of the few pleasures may very well be watching Yadi ride off into the sunset. If that means winning 81 games instead of 84, sign me up.
