As stable as they've been the last 16 years, they should definitely look into keeping a veteran for the right price.  Matheny made it sound like Holliday might take less to stay. They definitely need to keep Molina.
I know you catch a lot of shit on here, but a legit question:  why keep Molina if going full rebuild?

I think Molina will retire as a Cardinal, same as Wainwright.  He just turned 34 in July and is signed through next year and club option for the next. Believe he's caught 145 games and having the best numbers on offense since 2013.  They need a better backup for next year and give him more rest but need that bat and timely hitting.  And he's still needed for these young pitchers. 
Pretty good numbers for a catcher.    303   .357   .423   .780

The Cardinals don't do full rebuilds. They're always competitive.

You must have missed the early to mid 90's.

Why move Yadi? He has great value in a deal. That's why.

That's hard for me to say. He's my favorite Card.

You must not be remembering the 90's or that your manager is Matheny.  Forget that I am a Cubs fan for a minute, but the Cards are going to have to do more than stay competitive in that division for at least a few years.  Trying to stay competitive while holding onto aging vets is why the Reds and Phillies are where they are.

Yeah I agree with the other poster that stated he had a lot of value for young pitchers as well.

He may have great value but i think he has more value in keeping him.


And yes I remember the early 90s but that was the last time they were irrelevant. That's a long time.

The Reds and Phillies aren't the Cardinals. Seems like the Cardinals have made the playoffs 10 of last 13 years. Can anyone else match that?

Agree.

Aging veterans start breaking down pretty fast post juicing era.

Hasn't worked out too well for Cincy and Philly hanging on to Howard and Votto.

Votto is 32. Leads league in walks, obp, hitting .300. Not his fault.
