Holliday in Stanbodia: Matt Holliday is a Cardinal Now

| | Comments (13)

File this under things that happened while I was on a long lunch: Oakland A's outfielder Matt Holliday was traded to the Cardinals in exchange for Brett Wallace and two other kids, Triple-A pitcher Clayton Mortensen and Double-A outfielder Shane Peterson. He joins a long line of rental players traded just before the deadline in exchange for a smattering of prospects.

This is a good trade for two very important reasons: (a) it gives the Cardinals some protection for Albert Pujols in the lineup and (b) it makes my anti-Astro screed look a whole lot more cromulent.

This also means that there is most likely going to be a rematch of the 87 world series.



That headline made me laugh for a good 15 minutes. I'm inspired to fire up GH3 this evening.


I had to look it up, too.

I don't know why, njpanick. It's a perfectly cromulent word.

My mistake: I tried to look it up in a conventional online dictionary.

I'm sorry if I offended you and your Astros team, rfs.
