Cardinals Trade for Matt Holliday

        The St. Louis Cardinals have pulled off a blockbuster deal with the Oakland Athletics for outfielder Matt Holliday.  The Cardinals traded for Holliday to protect Albert Pujols in the lineup.  Holliday will be in the lineup for tonight's game against the Phillies.

        Holliday is batting .286 with 11 homers and 54 RBIs.  The Athletics received three prospects for Holliday, including blue chip third basemen Brett Wallace.  Matt Holliday's contract is up at the end of the season.
