The Holliday Re-Cap Post

Did you hear? The Cardinals re-signed Matt Holliday to a new contract. I know, right? You would have figured somebody would have said something.

The deal is worth 120 million dollars over 7 years (17M/per) and ensures that the beefy majority of Holliday’s career will be spent donning the birds on the bat.
