While it may not look like it at first, according to Scott Boras, the competition for landing Matt Holliday in free agency appears to be a very tight race between two teams…
In case you can’t read the ridiculously small legend at right, I’ll give you the goods here:
I’ve got the Cards in red.
The Yankees are in the lighter blue.
The ‘mystery team’ is in the more navy blue.
Orange represents the Orioles.
Black represents the Orioles and Peter Angelos topping the orange O’s bid.
Finally, the green represents Angelos inexplicably outbidding both of his other bids.
Scott Boras is right folks. The Cards have competition, and it’s Peter Angelos. And Peter Angelos. And Peter Angelos.
