Matt Holliday: How is age affecting his performance?

Matt Holliday cares not about age-related decline. As Matt Holliday enters his age-35 season (his sixth full season with St. Louis), one can reasonably wonder the effect age has had (and will continue to have) on his overall performance, particularly while he is still under contract with the Cardinals (there is a 2017 club option for $17 million with a $1 million buyout). Projection systems have understandably had Holliday on a slight decline for a few years now (BABIP- and age-related), but he has managed to outperform the majority of these projections. In fact, in terms of wRC+,...

Bernie: Holliday still the key to offense

Matt Holliday's power has been in decline for several years, but he's still a highly capable hitter that can provide considerable impact for the 2015 Cardinals.

Cardinals' lineup lacking elite hitters

The Cardinals figure to put forth a very balanced lineup top to bottom in 2015, but the team lacks the top-level hitting they have had in previous years. The Cardinals starting lineup in 2015 should be one of the better lineups in the National League. From top to bottom, the team contains no holes. Almost every player in the lineup projects as average or above, and the team's weakest link, Kolten Wong, figures to be close to average as well. Depth is the team's strength. What they have in depth, they lack in high-end production on the hitting side. Matt Holliday, long one of the games very...

Matt Holliday: 2014 performance vs. projections

A look back and a look ahead. For St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday, 2014 was his age-34 season. It was the fifth season of the seven-year, $120 million contract Holliday signed with St. Louis as a free agent during the 2009-10 offseason and the first in which his $17 million salary was not the highest among the Cardinals—Adam Wainwright, in year one of his five-year contract extension, earned $19.5 million. Signing Holliday was a truly excellent move by general manager John Mozeliak. The veteran left fielder has been worth every penny of his hefty annual salary and then...
