Matt Holliday is a borderline waiver fodder. So what is the argument again?


Not if you platoon him as you should. He hit .355/.395/.570 with 3 HR, 16 RBI, 19 R in 29 games at Coors' thus far this season before getting hurt. He hit .338/.406/.603 with 10 HR, 36 RBI, 43 R in 69 games at Coos' last year. If you have another bench oufielder (as many do) to platoon him with, he is a very valuable commodity in a regularly sized league, due to the high average.

Remains to be seen how he will do. We shall see.
