Holliday wants spring decision on position
Question of the Day
Holliday said at the St. Louis Cardinals‘ winter warmup Sunday that he’d play wherever the team needed him, but wanted to know by spring training so he’d have enough time to adjust to a position switch. He assumed he’d be in left field and newly acquired Lance Berkman would be in right, but said he’d be willing to move.
“Yeah, I’d like to know, I think just for repetitions sake,” Holliday said.
“Lance will make the routine play out there, there’s no doubt in my mind,” the manager said. “That’s where he’s going to play, and Matt doesn’t have to make a change.”
Berkman, who’ll be 35 next month, has been primarily a first baseman the last four years but has dropped 20 pounds in preparation for a return to the outfield.
“We’re not giving up the routine play, that’s what you worry about,” La Russa said. “He’s got a hell of a bat and he’s going to be an average, at least, outfielder.
“I don’t feel like we’re conceding anything.”
