Ken (Portland) To start a franchise...Price/Wieters or Strasburg/Heyward? Jim Callis (2:02 PM) I'll say Strasburg/Heyward. I'd take Wieters over Heyward because of the position scarcity, but I think the difference between Strasburg and Price is greater.

The trade between the Cardinals and A's involving Matt Holliday looks like a win for both teams -- Oakland gets a strong troika of prospects that's better than what it gave to Colorado for Holliday seven months ago, while St. Louis gets a much-needed offensive boost that should greatly improve its chances of making the playoffs.

The Pirates would prefer to swing a deal with the Rockies in which they would get second base prospect Eric Young Jr.
