Jason Motte has two years of arbitration eligibility. Or, I should say, he had two years of arbitration eligibility. They’re gone now, as he and the Cardinals signed a two-year deal buying them out.

Motte posted a 2.75 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and struck out 86 batters while walking only 17 in 72 innings last season while saving 42 games.

The dollars: Rosenthal reports it’s $12 million plus incentives. But since you don’t write the checks, you don’t care beyond curiosity’s sake, do you?

    Fact: psychology case studies have shown that people who’s eyes appear very close to the other look like criminals

    Yea that means u motte

    On a real note, this converted catcher can throw some heat, he deserved a deal

        Was I that obvious?

        I thought maybe if I..um..er..”forgot” about him the organization maybe would as well.
