A's trade Matt Holliday to the Cardinals

The Oakland A's have traded Matt Holliday to the St. Louis Cardinals for Brett Wallace, Shane Peterson, and Clayton Mortensen.

All three guys are included in John Sickels top 20+ prospect list for the Cards coming into the season, with Peterson and Mortensen grading at C+, Wallace as an A-.

UPDATE -- John Sickels likes the trade for both teams.  I think his analysis is probably about right, particularly if the Cards decided Wallace can't stick at third base.
