Cardinals Rumors: Ankiel, Molina

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a new column up this morning regarding the Cardinals' arbitration-eligible players.  This year they have Rick Ankiel, Yadier Molina, and Todd Wellemeyer.

Goold spoke to Scott Boras regarding Ankiel's situation, which is definitely a unique one.  Salaries for arb-eligible players are often determined by looking at comparables, but Ankiel doesn't really have any (Babe Ruth doesn't quite fit).  Ankiel has four years of service time; he'll be a free agent after the 2009 season.

Molina has three years of service time, so he's under team control through 2010.  Goold says a multiyear deal for Molina is likely to be discussed.
