It looks like a happy new year for the Cardinals, thanks to an unlikely bit of work from general manager John Mozeliak and owner Bill DeWitt Jr. By signing Matt Holliday to a seven-year contract after previously securing the uncertain returns of manager Tony La Russa and pitching coach Dave Duncan - even if for only the 2010 season - the Cardinals have joined the Mariners and perhaps the Yankees and Red Sox in having...

First Mike Gonzalez, then Garrett Atkins, and now Matt Holliday? Foxsports.com reported Thursday morning that the Orioles have "jumped into the bidding" for Holliday, the slugging outfielder who is regarded as the best hitter on the free-agent market. Don't get too excited. The Orioles, according to sources, did have discussions about Holliday with his agent, Scott Boras, during their negotiations regarding Gonzalez. Any team would be interested in such a player, especially a club with a glaring need for a right-handed power hitter.

OAKLAND, Calif. - -Aubrey Huff endured five of his balls getting caught either on the warning track or at the wall in Seattle. In the same series at Safeco Field, he hit a shot that was initially ruled a homer and correctly overruled into a foul ball. In Friday's series opener at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, Huff watched another potential homer die on the right-field warning track. Frustration ensued after each near miss, but the Orioles' first baseman didn't reach his breaking point until the eighth inning Saturday night, when he had a bloop hit with two men on taken away on a diving play by Oakland Athletics left fielder Matt Holliday.

Unless you belong to a league with a stricter steroids policy than Major League Baseball's - something to consider for those who think the 10-day suspension is a weak slap on a chemically-enhanced wrist - then Monday's bombshell was a mere blip on your roto radar. Rafael Palmeiro will miss 10 days. Big deal. Might as well be a stiff lower back. The real news last week was the Orioles acquisition of outfielder Eric Byrnes. Bye, bye Bigbie. Hello, Mr. Byrnes. Excellent. Byrnes is a career .269 hitter who hits lefties well and put up career highs of 20 home runs and 17 stolen bases last season.

Here's a position-by-position breakdown for the 2007 World Series (Colorado is listed first in each capsule. Statistics are from the regular season.) Catcher Colorado's Yorvit Torrealba (8 HRs, 47 RBIs, .255 BA) vs. Jason Varitek (17 HRs, 68 RBIs, .255 BA) The energetic Torrealba has provided an emotional spark as well as a clutch bat this postseason with 13 total bases and a .414 on-base percentage. But Varitek is the glue that keeps the Red Sox together, both offensively and calling the game.

The Orioles made plenty of moves this offseason. There were also national steroid controversies and star free agents holding "Will work for fewer millions" signs. It was a pretty entertaining winter, baseball-wise. But, like the good old days, the New York Yankees dominated the hot-stove season. They did it with big-money signings, a dash of backbiting and the pedestal crash of the game's biggest star. The Yankees are obviously the biggest story this spring, but there are other things to keep an eye on in Florida and Arizona after pitchers and catchers report.

They were Harry Stuhldreher, Jim Crowley, Don Miller and Elmer Layden, but you probably know them as Notre Dame's Four Horsemen of the 1920s. "Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again," Grantland Rice wrote after a 13-7 upset of Army. "In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. Those are only aliases." We bring you a baseball version of these literary horsemen of the Apocalypse. They are Albert Pujols, Joe Mauer, Prince Fielder and Adrian Gonzalez.
