I just read this article from the always amusing Ken Rosenthal.
Basically, it points out that if the Rockies were to trade Holliday, the A's (among other teams) could make good use of him. I know were still in-between on how much to compete now, but can you imagine how amazing Holliday could be for the A's?!?!? Of course the Rockies would demand a haul of prospects which would go against the whole point of trading Swisher and Haren. However, a nice aspect would be that the A's could try to make him their franchise player for the future. Or they could always flip him after the 08 campaign if it doesn't work out. Lots of options...and its always fun to speculate.
