Ken Davidoff of NY Newsday has reported that a source "in the loop" with Matt Holliday has informed him that the star LF wants to play in New York.

The Mets and Yankees are on top of Hollidays list when he becomes a Free Agent, and it has been reported that he is on top their list as well.

I know the Mets are going to make a hard push for Holliday, however the Yankees are the clear cut favorites in the Holliday Sweepstakes.

Even though Holliday likes playing in the National League, Citi Field has a very spacious outfield and playing there could be tough for the defensively challenged outfielder.

The Yankees will also have alot more money to spend as they have two Left Fielders coming off the payroll at 13 million a piece, and adding Holliday would make their Lineup almost unfair.

To add to the pile Winning is probably a factor, actually I think I have said enough I'm starting to get sick with this slant.

Holliday will most likely be looking for a 4 or 5 year deal worth about 15 million a year.
