Sunday Morning Rockpile:

Hello, June. Good bye, 9-19 May. Nothing like the start of a new month to hopefully win a game.

And on this first day of June, Woody Paige and Mark Kiszla decided to have a debate on the merits of trading Matt Holliday before July's trade deadline. Paige believes the "Skid Rox" should trade Holliday and lists eleven possible destinations. Two of those are Clevelan (for C.C. Sabathia) and San Francisco (for Tim Lincecum). Mark Kiszla doesn't believe that's possible:

But do you really believe a Holliday fire sale is going to land the Rockies a stud pitcher such as Cleveland's C.C. Sabathia or Tim Lincecum from San Francisco?

Dream on.

Only a sucker who thought the Rockies were a better team than the Red Sox might believe Holliday would bring equal value in trade.

Even if the Rockies could land C.C. Sabathia, does anyone seriously believe, as Paige does, that the Monforts would "get over the Hampton/Neagle debacle" and give Sabathia the money he wants?
