Kevin Goldstein added to his earlier opinion (said it was an outstanding trade for the As)

Look, it's a good deal for Cardinals too, flags fly forever, wouldn't you rather be STL in the standings? That's what it's really about.

And the PD's story, which has a lot of the Cardinals POV on the trade. I like everything I hear from Mo in here:

i kind of want to start a 'will we re-sign Holliday?' poll, but that could be a buzzkill on a great Cardinals day.

Is that how power batting stats are going to be listed now: non-Bonds numbers?


Also, did Albert just not make himself available all day? I haven't seen or heard any comment from him. I assume he's happy? (That's the goal, right? 8-[ )
