The man who was primarily responsible for the great run that the Colorado Rockies had in the 2007 MLB Baseball season has been traded to the Oakland A’s. Matt Holliday, the Big Daddy of the Rockies Baseball team and unarguably the most popular man on the team is now headed to Oakland. The Oakland A’s got Matt Holiday in exchange for pitcher Greg Smith, reliever Huston Street and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. There is also word that the Oakland A’s might just put Holliday again on the trading block and get some other players from other teams in exchange.
Matt Holliday is 29 years old and an outfielder. He was the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the 2007 season of the National League (NL). His batting average stood him third in the National League in the just concluded 2008 season. The Rockies had a wild season in 2007, but in 2008 they failed to reach the finish line for playoffs.
