A's trade Matt Holliday to Cardinals

In what may be considered the first "blockbuster" trade this season, the A's traded Matt Holliday to the Cardinals for three players, including third baseman Brett Wallace:

The Athletics and Cardinals have completed a trade that sends outfielder Matt Holliday to St. Louis in exchange for third baseman Brett Wallace, outfielder Shane Peterson and right-handed pitcher Clayton Mortensen, sources confirmed to ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

In addition, sources said the Athletics will throw in $1.5 million to the Cardinals.

Holliday's name was thrown out there in trade talks with the Red Sox, but thankfully that is dead now. Some thought Holliday could fill a gap in the lineup for the Sox, but as we've seen from this latest trade, it'd take a lot to get him. Personally, I wouldn't touch Holliday with a 10 foot stick, but one man's trash is another's treasure.
