The Oakland A's dealt Carlos Gonzalez, Huston Street and Greg Smith to the Rockies to get Matt Holliday and his expiring contract for the 2009 season. Matt turned down the Rockies' extension so he had to go. Read all about the gory details on how it went down at MLB Trade Rumors.
Now that a deal has gone down maybe the trade market will loosen up and we might get a deal for Peavy done. At this point I don't care where he goes, I just want the Braves to do something. Give CC 100 million bucks. Trade KJ for Ludwick and sign Lemmer to a minor league contract to take over second. Sign Corey Patterson and convert him to a closer. Do something. Seriously, I'm starting to get antsy here.
