The Cardinals and Stephen Piscotty have agreed to a multi-year extension expected to be announced at a press conference this afternoon.

You get an extension! And you get an extension! EVERYONE GETS EXTENSIONS!

$33.5M guarantee, per Heyman. Sounds like 6 years, starting this year. Option for 2023.

I don't think that works the way you think it works. That doesn't mean they took a deal off the table. That means whoever the media was getting their information from didn't know what they were talking about. Mo is notoriously quiet when it comes to stuff like this. Just look at Piscotty;s deal, they started talking in February and the first we heard about it was this morning when they scheduled the press conference.

I'm pretty confident in saying that we can count on one hand the number of people who actually knew where things stood those last couple days of Molina's extension negotiations. And none of them told the media what was going on.

Like I said to people Thursday night when "sources" broke that they were "finalizing" the deal. Then both sides came out and said that the deal wasn't done yet and everyone started hyperventilating about it. "Finalizing" is not "agreed" is not "done." Until you put your signature on the line, it's not done. You can be close. You can even be agreed. But until you sign the contract, it's not done.

Have you not heard the term 'fake news'? Rosenthal jumped the gun on his story, Nothing to do with the Cardinals.
