Maybe It's Time for the Holliday Season

It looks like the Red Sox' hopes on re-acquiring Jason Bay are close to dead, but it is time to move on. According to some reports, the Red Sox have made a contract offer to free agent left fielder, Matt Holliday. Holliday is probably the #1 free agent this year as he split the season between the Oakland A's and St. Louis Cardinals, going for a great line of .313, 24, 109 as he was great after moving to St. Louis after a disappointing stint in the AL. In 2007, Holliday led the NL in average, going for an MVP-caliber line of .340, 36, 137. Accordingly, the Red Sox' contract offer to Holliday was for $82.5 million over 5 years, the same contract they gave to John Lackey. This contract averages out to around $16.5 million a year. I would personally love to see Holliday with the Sox, but I doubt it will happen. Go Sox, all the way!!!!!!


  1. Holliday's got my vote. At least since Bay is looking less likely, which is very sad. It will be hard to say Goodbye to Jason Bay, who was such a key player for the Sox this year. I wish him well whereve he goes -- but I hope it's the NL!
