Holliday Hurts Cubs’ Chances

By bullpenbrian - January 6, 2010 - 1:15 am Leave a comment.

No other team, or baseball city for that matter, retains its star players better than the Cardinals, and that’s saying something when you’re without the Yankees’ deep pockets.

McGwire, Edmonds, Rolen and now Matt Holliday…all stayed when more lucrative deals were offered to sign elsewhere. And as wonderful a baseball city as Chicago is, that’s sadly never been the case on the North Side.
