ST. LOUIS, MO - OCTOBER 10:  Matt Holliday #15 of the St. Louis Cardinals kisses his bat at home plate in the sixth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game Three of the NLDS during the 2009 MLB Playoffs at Busch Stadium on October 10, 2009 in St. Louis, Missouri.

According to STL Today, momentum between the Cardinals and LF Matt Holliday is picking up.   The deal is expected to be the largest in franchise history. 

As of now, I do not see another logical destination for Holliday.   The Orioles appear interested, but I think Holliday wants to win now, and the Orioles are probably one or two years away.  Unless the Yankees or Angels step in(unlikely) expect to see Holliday in red.
