I don't see why he'd veto a trade, truth be told. The Rangers are as good or better a fit for him as the Cardinals. The fans are good, the weather is great, no income tax and a park that will inflate his HR totals. What's not to like?
The thought crossed my mind too. Craig in left, Adams at first, Taveras backing up Beltran/Jan for a year. It would be sweet, plus you save some cash for a few years to pay Andrus if you like what you see. It won't happen, because I suspect Holliday is looked at as a player who has already peaked, although they know they likely can't keep Andrus and Profar both happy. Neither wants to play 2nd in their primes.
