Holliday Derby Begins

According to Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies have made it known to rival executives that left fielder Matt Holliday is available.  Renck names the Red Sox, Phillies, Angels, Mets, Royals, and Nationals as potential suitors.  I still find the oft-mentioned Red Sox idea to be far-fetched.

The Rockies would prefer to move corner infielder Garrett Atkins, however.  The Angels, Twins, and Red Sox are cited as potential fits.  However, other teams are surely aware of Atkins' defensive struggles at third base and questionable hitting away from Coors Field.  Renck says the Angels' interest will depend on their ability to re-sign Mark Teixeira.

Starting pitching seems to be the Rockies' target return for either player.  They'd be giving up one year of Holliday and two of Atkins, plus the likely draft pick compensation.
