The ring is the reward, not a 2 year $19 mil contract. I'm thrilled with this deal. I'd be furious if I were a cards fan. That would be like the Reds picking up Griffey's option for a couple years. This deal, and the Stro's keeping Biggio around helps the Reds. Plus, I'm guessing the Cards cant make a big splash in FA for pitching now too.
