With Spring Training not far off, it's time to get in a baseball mood with #7 in my Favorite Rockies Players series: left fielder Matt Holliday. Matt Holliday played four seasons with the Colorado Rockies, and was a member of Colorado's 2007 World Series team (they lost to the Boston Red Sox in four games.) During those four seasons, Holliday was a two time All Star, won three Silver Slugger Awards (he has four total,) and was named Rockies Player of the Year twice. In fact, 2007 was Holliday's best year in a Rockies uniform. He was the National League Batting Champion, the National League RBI Leader, and the National League Championship Series MVP. Holliday finally did win a World Series, in 2011, with the St. Louis Cardinals. He is currently a member of the New York Yankees.

Don't forget his moment of oblivion in an Oakland A's uniform.

I know. I figured it was better left unsaid.

@teamfreak16 He did make a swift escape from Oakland to St Louis so it worked out. A $13 million one year deal with the Yanks. Sweet paycheck.

Excuse my weirdness - it's probably just cause I got a headcold , but the first thing I thought was "I wonder if he gets picked on because of his name" and started thinking about the Madonna song "Holiday"

Believe it or not, that's one of the few Madonna songs that I actually like.
