What changed so drastically for them they couldn’t just do this 1-2 weeks ago so he could be ready opening day?

Also thank god he signed now so if/when the bullpen has a rocky stretch we don’t get all the articles/talking heads saying how we need to get him since he’d be like our 5th best relief pitcher assuming health.

This is a good and fitting typo.

I strongly suspect Holland is going to fall off a cliff sooner than later, so seeing him get 14 million from the Cardinals is pretty exciting.

He's probably fine, but the idea that they just took themselves out of midyear upgrade season to spend $14 million on a injury prone closer is pretty good
