WATCH: Cards ballboy jumps into crowd to avoid line drive

Upon further review, you could probably call this guy a “ballman” rather than a ballboy, but clearly, he didn’t want to get hit by this first inning Matt Holliday line drive.

Fantasy Roundup: Sell Holliday

We’re almost half way through the season and Matt Holliday, who turned 34 this past January, is quietly having the worst offensive season of his career. His ISO, wOBA, and OPS are all the lowest of his career. The question every Holliday owner is saying is, “Will he turn it around? If so, when will it happen?” He currently has a career-low 5.9% HR/FB rate, which is nearly 10...

Cardinals make the most out of Holliday's moonshot against the Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Matt Holliday hasn't hit many homers lately but when he has, they have been no-doubters. The one he slugged Tuesday night was pretty important, too. As in, Cardinals 1, Rays 0. Holliday produced the game's only run in the fifth inning when, with two strikes and two outs in the sixth, he connected with a splitter that didn't split that he launched...

MLB Series of the Weekend Preview: Cardinals Try to Fend Off Red-Hot Jays

With a 21-9 record in May that saw them soar to high perch in the AL East, the Toronto Blue Jays have started June in similar fashion—winning four straight to open the month (include three at Detroit). The Cardinals were on the same flight track until two weeks ago. Mike Matheney’s club closed to within one-and-a-half games of NL Central-leading Milwaukee on May 22. Then, it...

Holliday has been about as productive with Cardinals as with Rockies

ST. LOUIS -- If Matt Holliday doesn't take a day off this weekend, come Sunday he will reach a special milestone. He will play in his 699th game as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals, which will top by one the number he played for the Rockies, the team that drafted him in 1998. "That's a good thing," Holliday said with a smile Thursday when he was informed of the...

Holliday ready to talk about something other than homerless streak

A shutout from Lance Lynn allowed the St. Louis Cardinals to bounce back from a series-opening loss to the New York Yankees. The surging Cardinals hope to get a similar effort from Shelby Miller on Wednesday night, though Miller hasn't been pitching nearly as deeply into games despite his mostly positive results of late. St. Louis goes for its 11th win in 14 contests as it faces...

Matt Holliday’s fantastic spring hitting

Few can draw the enthusiasm or criticism from St. Louis Cardinals fans like Matt Holliday. Since coming to the team in 2009, he’s had only two seasons where he failed to attain at least a .300 average. In both cases, he fell short by .005 or less. His on-base percentage in that time has hovered right around the .390 mark. Despite his decidedly positive numbers, leadership has a...
