And if I'm the Rockies GM, I say fine. You see they can keep Holliday and trade him at the July trading deadline if they are out of contention come 2009. If they are in it, I think they would take the draft picks if the Rockies get back to the playoffs.
You have to give them a reason to trade Holliday during the offseason.
