St Louis Cardinals

USA Today Sports has reported that the Mariners have been somehow leveraged into a 7 year, $175M contract extension for Felix Hernandez, because you can never pay too much to be a solid 4th place ahead of the Astros.  Granted, that shouldn’t be viewed as the floor for an Adam Wainwright extension, but even seeing [...]
