MLB Trade Rumors: St. Louis Cardinals Want Matt Holliday?

From Twitter:

injuryexpertRT @BaseballStone: It looks like the st. Louis cardinals will make a deal for oaklands matt holliday. The asking price is brett wallace.

SI_JonHeyman tony la russa is said by sources to badly want holliday. cant blame 'em for that. #cardinals

These tweets follow on Buster Olney's earlier report of the same trade rumor - the Oakland A's send Matt Holliday to the St. Louis Cardinals for AAA 3B Brent Wallace. 

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.
