Cardinals Close to Acquiring Holliday

137

Word on the street is that the St. Louis Cardinals are close to acquiring Oakland LF Matt Holliday in exchange for 3B Brett Wallace, OF Shane Peterson, and RHP righty Clayton Mortensen. Interesting. I expected him to stay put. The Cards are paying a lot for him. The upside to this is that he's not going to San Francisco. UPDATE: ESPN.com's Buster Olney reports that the deal is complete. The A's will contribute $1.5MM to the remainder of Holliday's salary, which leaves the Cards with about $4.5MM.
