Re: This team will NEVER be "a Matt Holliday away from the playoffs"
Jason Bay and Vladimir Guerrero would be two much more appealing FA OF than Holliday, who is looking enough like a "Coors mirage" to have ESPN and Enquirer articles written about how the market has gone from being potentially 5/$100mm to 3/$30mm. Holliday is OPSing .790 this year, albeit in a pitcher's park. I don't know that he is going to command the $17-20mm/year that some people on this board expect. Bay for sure will command at least that much with the season he is having, and Guerrero will likely make more than Holliday as well.
