DateQuestionAnswer
2011-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Re: Holliday. I know Kevin Goldstein talks about how you don't make positional decisions on MLB players based off guys in the minors, but what about decisions on MLB FA players based on the guys around them. As said, Holliday is set for a lot of years and a lot of dollars. One would guess he'll need to move to 1B by the end of that contract, where, if Albert is signed there would be no occupancy. Forget a team being able to support 2 big contracts, how could an NL team support two big contracts for 1Bmen?
(Andy from Chicago)
It's a good question. My from-the-hip reaction is that Pujols' value to the team from both an on-field and marketing POV would transcend that question. But let me also say that this is not a question the Cardinals should have put themselves in a position to answer. Early on in free agency, teams handed out lengthy contracts to players in their 30s, got burned, and learned not to do it. Just as we seem to be replaying the Great Depression in our politics because we have gotten so much distance on the event that we have forgotten the lessons, owners and executives have forgotten, I dunno, Richie Zisk.
