Looks like Beane Just Got His July Trading Chip

I must admit I'm surprised it cost them this much considering Holliday's home/road splits, but it appears Oakland will aquire Matt Holliday in exchange for outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, starting pitcher Greg Smith and closer Huston Street.

My guess is that Beane plans to flip Holliday at the deadline when the price for his services should go up, and traded Street because Beane never likes to overpay for closers.

He could net a haul in July if Holliday has a good first half.

Things will be really funny if Holliday goes down with a season-ending foot injury in mid-June while running the bases.
