I REALLY hope we can sign him to a few years, but I don't know that Boras will let that happen. I dunno...seems we could have got more out of Wallace than a 2-month rental.

I just hope you didn't sell low on Holliday. Coming back to the NL, with protection around him - his numbers will make a significant rebound. FWIW (small sample size), does anyone know in which park he's put up his best stats away from Coors? ;-D

Helps me in fantasy as I'm a Holliday owner, and helps the Yankees this weekend by removing Oakland's best player. Win-win for me.

Assuming they offer both arbitration, of course. Holliday will definitely be Type A, so presumably they get a first rounder (unless a bottom 15 team signs him of course) and a sandwich pick, but at the moment DeRosa looks to be Type B, so that would be just a sandwich pick. Still three picks in the top 50 or so any way you look at it.

Still a lot to give up for a couple hundred ABs. :-°

Ignoring his 10 ABs in KC, it's STL.

If that is what the Cardinals are getting in this deal, then this deal does not help the Cards out nowhere near as much as some might think. If the move to the NL and Pujols in the lineup makes Holliday a 900ish+ OPS guy the rest of the year, this could be a move that pays off for St. Louis this year. But still 6 years of Wallace even with probable bad defense is alot to pay.


Don't forget that Holliday also has a .877 career OPS at the Oakland Coliseum. He simply hits better at home than away - regardless of where what team he plays for. Also, at the new Busch, he has a career OPS of 1.350, and a career average of .297 at NL Central ballparks.

This trade is the ultimate risk/reward for the Cardinals. Personally, I think this makes them the clear favorite in the division, and probably top three in the NL.

Win for Oakland
Win/Loss for St. Louis
Win for Holliday owners
