SI_JonHeyman tony la russa is said by sources to badly want holliday. cant blame 'em for that. #cardinals
For the A's, this seems like a great deal given the team needn't worry about Holliday accepting arbitration coming off a $13.5 million season and receive a player who will be major league ready before the team can even use the presumed draft picks received when Holliday declines the arbitration offer.
The Cardinals use a prospect to add the bat they hope will provide production behind 1B Albert Pujols. Wallace is just a year removed from Arizona State and finds himself in AAA. With a 298/351/431 Pacific Coast League slash stat line, one wonders if the Cardinals will regret dealing him at all.
Should the Cardinals deal their top prospect, 3B Brent Wallace, for two plus month rental Matt Holliday?
Yes. The team can either recoup the two picks next draft or hope he accepts arbitration in what will be Albert Pujols' walk year. (139 votes)
No. Wallace is a top prospect. Don't you realize he is more valuable than getting in on the Google IPO? (103 votes)
