Assuming Holliday continues to light things up the way he's been the past few weeks, this is a great short-term trade for the Cards. Makes their lineup a lot more potent with Holliday protecting Pujols.
It was expected given how negotiations picked up recently.
Dodgers travel to STL next week for a 4-game series.
Cards finally get that bat to go with pujols, yikes.
Ludwick didn't go the other way? Good news for my fantasy teams, bad news for the Cubbies.
If the Cards don't re-sign Holliday, this could be a pretty bad move for them long-term because they're going to need to ante up to keep Pujols happy next year.
They already got fleeced by Beane for Mulder...
