How many years left on his contract and isn't Holliday's contract too big? I don't think I'd trade him. The team has one of the best records in the big leagues. Just a tough game
Nothing to do with a tough game.
Everything to do with the fact he can't play LF, and is a caveman at the plate.
Holliday in review:
Acquired 09 - proceeds to drop ball in left, ending Cards playoff run.
'10 - Had a lot of big hits on Tuesdays.
'11 - Taken off the WS roster for game 7 bc he was hurting the team. Blamed it on a pinky, but was playing basketball on tv 1 day later.
Guy is not clutch, he's a cavemen that only knows 1 approach, can't play the field. Would much rather get rid of him, keep Beltran and move Taveras up next year. Holliday is so unimportant it's comical. Even Craig could be the franchises LFer with Adams at 1st. He's our highest paid player, he's one dimensional, and he's really not that great of a leader.
But, trading him will never happen.
