    Re: Holliday to the A's

    Dang. I wanted to see him in a Mets uniform. But how in the heck could Oakland sign him after this year? Maybe Beane will be shopping him for prospects or something.

    Wow, the A's actually acquire talent instead of letting to go for once.

    Re: Holliday to the A's

    huh.. this seems like a trade where the A's would be on the opposite end.

    The A's will likely ship him out to a contender mid year or rake in the draft picks when he files for free agency... Beane knows what he is doing... He has no intentions to re-sign him...

    I think Billy Beane has been replaced by Bizarro Billy Beane.

    I have no doubt of that. Beane was recently featured in Mental Floss (not a sports mag) as one of the "New Geniuses".

    Re: Holliday to the A's

    ESPN was saying all weekend he was going to the Cardinals. Shocker, ESPN was wrong.

    He would have but the Cardinals wouldn't part with Ludwick...

    Another dumb move by the Cardinals (assuming this IS the reason). They aren't willing to part with a player who has had one good season to get a guy who is a proven all-star.

    I think it came down to years. They have Ludwick for 3 years and would only get Holliday for 1 before free agency. I guess they have more pressing needs (rotation, bullpen) than adding to an already full outfield.


    TRUE & VALIANT

    STLtoday - St. Louis Cardinals GM says Holliday trade not happening

    This article says the Rockies also wanted Skip Schumaker and Mitchell Boggs, a AAA pitcher, and the Cards were unwilling to trade three players (two considerably productive) for Holliday and all his $$$. Earlier in the week they were saying that Holliday would command a higher salary than Pujols.

    Too bad for Cards fans. Having Pujols and Holliday in the same lineup is a rather sexy proposition, but alas, no more.

    thrilled to death that the Cardinals did not end up with this guy.

    Re: Holliday to the A's

    As an A's fan let me say...SWEEEEEEEEEEET!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Beane may be re-signing Holliday after all. Ken Rosenthal says:

    Rosenthal says the A's do not plan to flip Holliday or trade him in July. Rosenthal also says the A's could increase payroll to as high as $80MM, which could mean $25-30MM to play with.
    Per MLBTradeRumors.com

    Re: Holliday to the A's

    Where are they getting the money to increase payroll? Must have good news coming about a new stadium in San Jose.
