I would not read too much into it just yet. He still has another year on his deal, and like catman says he needs to be shown the Cards are committed to keeping enough talent around for them to be playoff contenders on a yearly basis.

If they re-sign Holliday or acquire a comparable bat to hit behind him then he will likely to sign a new deal with the club.

They are going to have some extra cash to play with this winter with Troy Glaus' $12 million salary coming off the books.

Ryan Ludwick is due a raise and they need to re-sign Joel Piniero but other than that they should have some wiggle room to pay a guy like Holliday to hit in the order behind Pujols.
