Not that the Matt Holliday trade derby wasn't on before, but I think it's safe to officially declare it open season on the slugger after he basically just told the Rockies that it's not him, it's them. Holliday has one year remaining on his contract and it seems some are already adding him to the 112 players the Yankees will obtain through free agency.
Tell you what, though: If Holliday really wants to prove what he just said above, I know a little payroll-challenged team down on the Gulf Coast of Florida that could be a playoff mainstay if it gets him as a replacement for Cliff Floyd.
A big BLS head nod to MLB Trade Rumors for the redirect.
