Holliday traded to Oakland
Per SI.com, the A's have traded for Rockies slugger Matt Holliday. Big move for Oakland, though I am skeptical they could re-sign him particularly since Boras is his agent.
Wouldn't doubt this is a move where the A's try to make a serious run at the playoffs next year, and if they are out of contention in July they flip Holliday to a contender and try to re-coup the assets they dealt to Colorado.
