More on Matt Holliday

Posted By on June 16, 2009 12:39 pm

Got a piece over at FanHouse today on why I think it’s much more likely the A’s will trade Matt Holliday than keep him and take the compensation draft picks when he leaves. This isn’t exactly a revolutionary thought. Most smart baseball fans probably realized this was what was going to happen, but I’ve got a few specific reasons in there for why a trade makes more sense.

    I think the A’s would like to deal him but I wonder how many teams that have the financial means to take him on have a spot to put him. The Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, and Cubs could probably use him, but they seem set at left field. The one team that does seem to make sense is the Cardinals.

    I’m sure some of this will shake out in the next couple of weeks but if they don’t deal him I don’t think it will be a lack of trying. I also wonder if teams will shift to thinking about offense now that Peavy is off the block with his injury. That could open the market for Holliday.

    I suspect it’s more a question of what kind of deal Beane can get for Holliday, than if he wants to keep him or not.
