Rockies Sign Holliday For Two Years

As I mentioned earlier, I won't post about every one-year deal reached for arbitration-eligible players since they are quite common.  However many of the multiyear contracts reached deserve a mention.

Matt Holliday, a Scott Boras client, signed a two-year, $23MM deal today with the Rockies.  When the deal is up after the 2009 season he'll be a free agent.  That Holliday required this amount for two years shows what a fine deal the Rays struck with Carlos Pena.  I wonder if Boras recommended against the contract Pena signed.

Perhaps Holliday's extension indicates that the two sides have similar enough thinking that a longer-term deal could be reached before he reaches free agency.  Hard to say.
