We can and should extend Holliday.


You can't force him to sign. They've also just handed Holliday (Boras) negotiating leverage in any extension talks. He's now due to be a FA after 2029 instead of possibly after 2030.

I wouldn't even think about handing out long term extensions until a player has at least one year under his belt and has produced significantly.  Maybe two years.  There's been a ton of "can't miss" prospects down through the ages that completely flamed out.  I don't think Holliday or Henderson will be one of those players but you never know.

I gave up Holliday's age 26 season, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.

Haaa. I know the feeling. I’m a 3XL guy and these tshirt nights always let me down.

As I said before, Elias needs to work a trade w/ Hays, Urias, Mateo, throw in O'Hearn or Santander if needed for a quality BP arm and/or SP.  It's time to bring up Kjerstad, Mayo, Stowers.

And then scream “send these bums back to Norfolk” if/when they inevitably struggle.

And whos being recalled in their place because now Urias,Mateo, Hays, etc are either traded or DFaAd. Nice way to lose the depth you built up in one big swoop. Look, I get that Urias, Mateo, Hays arent the best regs to watch. They are good to great bench guys whove proven to be MLB caliber players. How is Holliday's start up here and the struggles that Cowser had up here last year and the struggles that Stowers has had up here not showing the foolishness of trying to establish 4 or 5 guys in MLB all at once. If it was 2020 then bring it on. Let em all learn and break in together. It cant be in a year with such high stakes

At this rate he might get sent back down and all of this is moot anyway.

Heasley down to Norfolk, Ramirez up to take his place. Not surprising.

They are going to stick this out with him for awhile. It would take 3 or 4 weeks of not just bad numbers but seeing no signs of progression for him to be sent back. Kinda like Cowser

They stuck with Henderson last year when he was struggling mightily and eventually began to adjust and settle in.  I'm sure they'll do the same with Holliday.

The “told ya so!” crowd all nice and lathered up already. Great to see. Great to see.

Happened last year with Gunnar when I saved his career. Looking forward to the same

I mean it’s been 11 at bats lol. It’s not I told you so it’s I told you to reserve judgement. How do you feel about Grayson Rodriguez?

"Send Jackson down now" is a lot tamer take than many of the Henderson takes last May. Wish it didn't have to be for 3 weeks, but I'd prefer he be sent down, too, though that is for service reasons and not performance. I think he's ready.

Send him down. Cowser is going to win ROY and get us that draft pick. Save Holliday for the extra year.

I dont know how you felt about service time manipulation a week ago so this isnt necessarily directed at you. Gonna be funny how much we see this from the same people crying about him not being up. It will take like 1 more week of him being poor for some of the same people to say send him back
