The Cardinals season came to a close yesterday, the first time in 6 years they will not be in the post season. This saved me some grief by not having to suffer through a playoff loss again, but is stinks all the same. At least there was one feel good story from the weekend.
I always felt Holliday was under appreciated by a lot of Cardinals fans because of his big contract. For the better part of his 7 years in St. Louis, he hit .300 with 20 home runs and 100 rbis each season. Hard to argue with that production. He was also a big contributor to the community, helping to start the Homers for Health program. I would like to see him return, but doubt he will accept the pay cut and lesser role. His tenure in St. Louis included 3 All Star games and a World Series title.
