nevermind, I see BW addressed them aboveJanuary 23, 2021 at 4:31 pm #152384
… in a very verbose manner… Maybe it is best we are now on a new page! 😉January 28, 2021 at 7:49 am #152581
Waino to Padres? Can’t heat up a bidding war without multiple bidders…
-Wainwright has several competitive offers, including one from #Padres, per source.
-Molina off to Caribbean Series with #Cardinals offer waiting on him.
–#stlcards have not actively sought reunion with Wong.
-And more on CMart… https://t.co/8i4ddrlHe0

Cards have now outspent the entire rest of the NL Central by a factor of 2, unless I missed something today. Well done. Lol
Also, I felt he would get less than Happ got, and jj had a better bead on Waino’s value. Good call, jj.January 28, 2021 at 6:52 pm #152612bccranParticipant
Good to have him back. His leadership is impactful.January 28, 2021 at 7:17 pm #152613mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
The one thing that I wish he could do more than anything is to impart some of his character, some of his sense of dignity, of respect for the fans, and the game itself, into some of the young pitchers that we have.January 28, 2021 at 7:45 pm #152615
The ol’ war horse is back!January 28, 2021 at 7:49 pm #152616bccranParticipant
Agree, mudville. Especially one.
JJ – only when moves are made. Don’t want to be a nuisance.
Take care. Be well.

1/8 nailed itJanuary 29, 2021 at 7:19 am #152652
The war horse will only get $8 MM if he achieves appearance incentives, per Goold. I haven’t seen the guaranteed base reported yet.January 29, 2021 at 9:08 am #152678
Apparently only $5M is guaranteed.January 29, 2021 at 9:28 am #152683January 29, 2021 at 9:34 am #152684
After Jeff Jones tweeted that Kolten sounded like a guy who wouldn’t be back in St Louis, Kolten tweeted this…
It’s a joke Jeff! We all know it’s a business just happy to see waino back

Where did you see that, gscottar?
Last night, MLBTR erroneously reported that 5+3 based on a tweet from Nightengale that was simply restating what Wainwright made LAST year. They later took that down.January 29, 2021 at 10:09 am #152690Euro DandyParticipantFree
Not sure if this is worth much, but here is a spotrac link saying 5MM base and 3MM incentives. They cite Baseball Prospectus and Rotoworld as general sources for contract info.January 29, 2021 at 10:28 am #152698
Without specific attribution, that could be based off the same mistake made by MLBTR. FWIW, I am always leery of Spotrac, personally.January 29, 2021 at 10:34 am #152699
The Cardinals have made the formal announcement, but they never disclose amounts.January 29, 2021 at 12:10 pm #152703
In a media call this morning, Wainwright told us that a couple of teams offered more than St. Louis.
Interestingly, Adam also publicly thanked the Post-Dispatch writers by name for writing articles saying that he should be re-signed….January 29, 2021 at 12:16 pm #152705
Waino is a class act. I hope he has a good year that ends with him getting the fan send-off he deserves in Busch.January 29, 2021 at 2:34 pm #152715

That may have been where I saw it. I can’t find anything about it now.
This is the one area where Heyman is actually valuable. If anyone can get scoops on contract amounts it is him so maybe he will post something soon.January 29, 2021 at 4:44 pm #152726
Casino Jon seems to have good agent contacts.January 29, 2021 at 5:24 pm #152729
He should have for all the PR work he does for them.
