With the All-Star break looming, teams are beginning to make a push for the playoff races. The St. Louis Cardinals are reportedly showing great interest in A's Outfielder Matt Holliday.

The A's are reportedly seeking equal value for Holliday, who so far has been a big disappointment. Holliday is hitting .274 with eight home-runs and 38 RBI in 72 games with the A's. The A's, who are currently 9.5 games back in AL West are looking like sellers rather than buyers.

The Cardinals would likely send Ryan Ludwick and one other player. Whether or not A's GM Billy Beane would send Holliday for a deal like that is unknown. If the A's were to keep Holliday and offer him arbitration (which he'd probably decline), the A's would receive two draft picks.
