Holliday Wants More Than Four Years

The Denver Post's Troy Renck noted two weeks ago that the Rockies planned to offer a four-year, $60MM extension to MVP candidate Matt Holliday.  Holliday is on vacation in Hawaii and hadn't heard those whispers.  When informed, he said he was honored but that four years wouldn't be enough.

The tough thing for the Rockies is that Coors Field inflates stats but doesn't necessarily translate to a salary discount.  Holliday should probably be a $13-14MM per year player, but don't go telling that to Scott Boras.  He's going to be asking for at least $18-20MM to buy out additional years of free agency.
