Happy Holliday

Oh, hello, Matt Holliday. Where have you been all my life? Oh, in the NL and briefly in Canada. I guess I just never saw you without your batting helmet, smiling, until the HR derby tonight.

St. Louis Cardinals Matt Holliday smiles during a press conference where it was announced he has inked a seven-year contract with the team, in St. Louis on January 7, 2010. Reports say Holliday will be paid $17 million per season, the largest player contract in franchise history. The deal also includes an option for the 2017 season. Holliday, who turns 30 on January 15th, owns a career .318 batting average with 152 home runs and 592 RBI's in six-plus seasons with the Colorado Rockies (2004-2008), Oakland Athletics (2009) and St. louis Cardinals.

Tonight at the Derby, Holliday was up after Swish, who looked adorable in his "American" jersey but performed less-well than my friend Janelle and I hoped.

Then came Matt. Our meet cute? I was biking at the gym, had just picked up my Real Beauty magazine that I brought home from work and as soon as I saw him step up to the plate, I put my magazine back down. He ended up only getting 5 HR before he hit his 10 out limit. Maybe he was distracted thinking about me? That must be it.

You almost made me forget about Brett Brett. Anyone want to go with me to Citi to see him play at the end of the month? Shake Shack's on me, but the line's on you. I don't want to miss a minute of this Holliday.
