Chess huh?

Holiday had a huge day as the DH. Maybe AL team(s) will notice………..?

Yeah, chess is MM’s thing. He sponsors some local young people’s chess club here in St Louis.
And keep in mind that Holliday has been quite clear about wanting to finish his career as a Red Bird. If they don’t pick up his 2017 option? Sounds like he’ll probably retire…or maybe he’ll see if the Cards might have an opening in an admin or coaching capacity.
