Cardinals trade for Holliday, Wallace steep price

Brett Wallace was a large price to pay for a guy who isn't performing so well this year and is a free agent at year end.

Matt Holliday was definitely a fantasy stud in Colorado but then again almost anyone is outside of pitchers.  Does giving up top prospect Brett Wallace who is already paying AAA ball really worth it?  This move also pushes Colby Rasmus to the pinch hitter status just as he was really hitting the ball well.

The move does show they want to win this year and I can't blame the team for getting more protection for Pujols.  However I don't think a bat is what they needed.  Without Brett Wallace the Cardinals officially have no chance on acquiring Roy Halladay.

They've now shown they want to win so keep an eye on this team making some other sort of move for a starting pitcher.  It would probably be more of the Doug Davis or Jarrod Washburn type however since they don't have anything else to offer unless they're willing to move Colby Rasmus.

In the end this trade helps St. Louis now with the worst case scenario being they get two type A compensation draft picks if they can't resign Matt Holliday.

Manny Ramirez on Roids

Don`t have a lot to say about this except it makes you wonder what players are not on steroids.


So many players are breaking down with injuries in their early thirties or even late 20`s after years of packing on weight and smacking the ball around.

Albert Pujols was drafted in the 13th round and was virtually a nobody signing at $70,000, and now he`s the most feared hitter in baseball.  Yes of course this kind of thing can happen, but just look at his injuries and how quickly he climbed from nobody to MVP.

Ken Griffey was a twig for a few years and then all of a sudden pounds came flying in along with HR`s.  Man he sure is a nice guy but do you really think this guy didn`t do the roids along with Alex Rodriguez, Edgar Martinez, and Jay Buhner back in the hey day in Seattle?
We`ve all been kidding ourselves a long time and Manny just brought reality back into the picture.

Here is to hoping guys like Tim Lincecum, Colby Rasmus, and all the other smaller built guys are successful and stay away from the juice...

Shame on you Jordan Schafer.
